Casey works in the lala land of code programming user-friendly websites.
Role at Wired Impact
Casey is a web developer at Wired Impact. He spends his days writing code for custom WordPress methods and solutions. He’s passionate about putting the user experience first and really focusing on a website’s usability.
The problem-solving aspects of web development are what keep Casey’s gears constantly moving. He often jumps into what he calls the “lala land of code” as he zeros in on a complicated functionality. There’s always something new to learn with coding, and Casey likes keeping up to date on the ever-changing world of technology.
Why He Loves This Work
The challenge that website coding presents keeps Casey on his toes, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s happy to be working with such a great team of people to accomplish amazing things for nonprofits. Casey sees the impact a great website can have on a nonprofit — increasing donations, volunteers and the number of people it’s able to reach. He’s proud to be a part of such an influential transition for nonprofits working to make the world a better place.
His Path to Nonprofit Web Work
A graduate of Kennesaw State University with a major in Computer Science, Casey found his way to nonprofit web work through a cold call. His wife was volunteering for a nonprofit called Give a Kid a Chance, which provides school supplies to children from low-income families at the start of each new school year. Casey wanted to get involved as well, and called to offer his web services on their website.
Through working with Give a Kid a Chance, Casey found his passion for working with nonprofit websites. He saw the difference a good website can make, and was excited by the opportunity to make it his career with Wired Impact.
Outside of Work
Casey still volunteers for Give a Kid a Chance, providing help with the website whenever he gets the chance.
He loves spending quality time with his two kids. They enjoy going to the park and picking fruit and vegetables together around North Georgia.
