“My favorite part about this profession is that engineering is analytical and theoretical, yet also hands-on and practical.”
Casey grew up in Ithaca, New York but has since placed roots in the mountain town of Bozeman, Montana. While he spent several years honing his engineering skills at a firm on the east coast, Casey’s career grew from humble beginnings in Ithaca where he fetched tools and carried lumber for his father and grandfather while they worked on the family’s house. He then worked in the construction industry right up to his enrollment in Cornell University’s engineering program.
Since then, he has leveraged both his Bachelor’s in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Master’s in Structural Engineering to design state-of-the-art structures in the industrial, nuclear and power/energy sectors, along with performing vibration mitigation, structural investigation and flood hazard assessments that keep infrastructure up and running.
Casey is a member of the ASCE 7 Seismic Subcommittee and the ASTM Fasteners Committee.
