Casey’s favorite pursuits are hiking, droning, photography and videography.  His deep love for the outdoors goes as far back as he can remember. At a young age, Casey’s passion was influenced by his grandmother who taught him to appreciate the beauty within nature.

Being outside has always brought him great joy.  Casey was raised in western Pennsylvania and grew up trekking the woods in that region. The desire to capture beautiful landscapes drew Casey to photography and videography. He carried this outdoor adventurer spirit with him when he relocated to his current home in Upstate South Carolina.
