Hi, I’m Casey. I’m a journalist and editor. I’ve wanted to be a writer since age nine, when I started following Dominick Dunne’s column in Vanity Fair. That dream was reaffirmed when I joined the newspaper staff at Mount St. Mary’s University, where I was an undergraduate, and felt the first adrenaline rush of exposing injustice and challenging authority. I received my B.A. in English and communication studies from there in 2007, and graduated from Columbia Journalism School with my M.S. in 2008.
After working in Washington, D.C., for a year and a half, I moved overseas. I have been working and traveling in Asia for the past three years, and have lived in Seoul, Beijing, and Chiang Mai, Thailand. My work has been published in Vogue India, the Wall Street Journal, Asian Correspondent and a number of regional publications.
I also offer editing and consultancy services on novels, non-fiction manuscripts and academic papers. It brings me great joy to help authors bring the best version of a passion project to the public. See below for more details on my writing and client services.
I cover political and human rights issues on my Witnessing Asia blog for Asian Correspondent, and write features on interesting trends and figures in the cities in which I live.
In addition to my journalistic work, I frequently write travel pieces from my various stops throughout Asia. I also write a column on travel and dating.
My services include story development, ghostwriting, line edits, and assistance with press kits and social media promotion. To schedule a free informational call about my editing process and rates, please email me.
My blog, Spinning Free, is where I do my favorite kinds of writing: narratives and personal essays on travel, life and personal development. Here are some of my favorites:
