Born and raised in Austin, TX, Casey feels a deep sense of commitment to the community. After graduating from The University of Texas, he volunteered internationally for three years, often on farms where he was able to nurture his passion for nature and feeding his loved ones. Casey’s travel aspirations were cut short when, at 27, he received a cancer diagnosis that set him on a path of learning how to use food as medicine. This experience instilled in him a determination to work toward a future in which access to quality food is a human right, rather than a privilege. As the new Education & Operations Coordinator at Farmshare, he feels honored to help empower aspiring farmers to reshape our food system. When not working, Casey enjoys spending time in the kitchen pretending to be a reality T.V. chef with his dog Kuma.
