Hi, I’m Casey. I’m a journalist and brand content writer. As a journalist, I write about the intersection of tech and social issues, with a specific focus on how fintech, artificial intelligence (AI), and spacetech are empowering developing communities around the world. I also write about personal finance and financial inclusion, and I help brands tell their stories through clear, compelling narratives.
As a content marketing writer, I do a few different things. One is ghostwriting thought leadership articles about digital marketing, fintech, entrepreneurship, and AI. I also write brand features, usually about how new technologies are impacting people’s lives.
I offer ghostwriting services for non-fiction manuscripts as well, and recently completed a book on entrepreneurship.
If you want to know more about who I am, read on. If you just want to see samples of what I’ve done or want to get in touch with me, check out my journalism and brand content portfolios, or get in touch.
The Full Story
I grew up at the Jersey Shore (yes, where the show was filmed and no, it’s not like what you see on MTV — most of the time), but moved around a lot after high school.
I went to Mt. St. Mary’s University in Maryland for undergrad, earned my master’s from Columbia Journalism School in New York City, and started my journalism career at Roll Call in Washington, D.C. Then I shocked my family and friends by announcing that I was moving to Seoul, South Korea, to teach English in 2010. I had always wanted to move abroad and after one too many late nights spent wondering, “If not now, when?,” I finally took the plunge.
Moving overseas was one of the best decisions I ever made. But I quickly discovered that I love writing too much to not do it for a living. So in 2011, I decided to continue my expat adventure by moving to Beijing and becoming a freelance writer. And that’s how I’ve made a living ever since. I’m now based in Iowa but continue to work with clients around the country and the globe. My interest is telling stories about how new technologies are changing people’s lives, for better or worse, wherever those stories arise.
