Over the last decade, Casey’s portfolio has included project management and planning a wide range of gaming industry events for Upper Deck, SOE, Daybreak Games and Blizzard. Casey mirrors the passion she has for creating epic events with a passion for living life. It’s not a rare occurrence to see Casey take on crazy new adventures like skydiving, bungee jumping, hiking Half Dome or trapezing. Although, having her “Tinker Casey” World of Warcraft TCG card art be used for Hearthstone’s Novice Engineer just might be one of her greatest achievements unlocked thus far!
