Social experimenter. Nontrepreneur. User of words. Teller of stories. Writer in the third person. Casey lives for longform stories about crazy people, and looks for opportunities to expose the everyday as borderline nuts. He spends time on mountain tops, climbs up ice sheets, and writes about it for BACKPACKER magazine, where he is a senior editor. The rest is a traipse through the unknown, right? Let’s make this no more self-indulgent than that. Off we go.
