Casey Driscoll, Back-End Senior Developer
By day, Casey is a full-stack, open-source web developer. By night, he is an amateur historian and arm-chair philosopher, fascinated by how things work and what makes people tick.
Casey likes to think of himself as the most limited of all specialists, the “well-rounded” man. In the first decade of his adult life, he was a university mascot, a ‘Momentum Monday Man,’ graphic designer, Special Olympics gymnastics coach, (failed) politician, software developer, historian, documentarian, and anger management volunteer. He saw Steve Jobs unveil the iPhone in person at MacWorld 2007. He plays too much Civilization, and he’s been to Chichen Itza twice. Elon Musk is his homeboy, and tequila is his drink of choice. His only weakness is Amanda Palmer. Watching the Packers play makes him R-E-L-A-X.
For Casey, technology is only a tool for connecting with people and understanding the world around us. For the next decade of his adult life, he wants to build things – hopefully cool things that people will want to use, software that helps people and makes the world a better place.
