Casey grew up skiing and climbing all over NY, VT, and NH and now calls Colorado Springs home. After completing a degree in Adventure Recreation and Education in VT, he made his way out west to pursue work in the outdoor education and guiding industry. Casey has been guiding all over the US on rock, ice, and skis since 2007 and currently splits his time working for Irwin and other guides services, and with the USAF Academy in Colorado Springs as Dir. of Adv. Programs. Casey is pursuing full AMGA/IFMGA certification and is an Assistant Rock Guide, Apprentice Alpine and Ski Guide, and a Certified Single Pitch Instructor. He is also AIARE Level 3 certified and a professional member of the American Avalanche Association. He skis almost year round, but when the snow melts away, you'll often find him guiding on rock and on class V whitewater around Colorado.
