Casey has been studying the art of filmmaking ever since he first watched the extended editions of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Realizing that good films, no matter the genre, always share a story about the human condition, he made the leap to study philosophy, obtaining a degree in the subject from Franciscan University of Steubenville. After graduation, he moved to Colorado with his then girlfriend and now wife; she also shares in his love of story and the human condition. He is currently pursuing a master's degree at the Augustine Institute in hopes that some of this knowledge will cast a transcendent light in his films.

His wife, Jacqueline, is his only boss. If she approves of the final product, then he knows he has told a good story.
