Hello.

I'm Kasey. I create things, break things, inspire others, bring people together, and slay dragons. This site is a curated collection of my work, process, results, and a place to humble-brag about my adventures.

This is my story.

Who I Am.

Designer. Speaker. Entrepreneur. Creative.

I craft technology that solves real problems. I ask the tough questions but listen carefully. I help teams move the needle and make the greatest impact possible. I'm highly involved in the design community and love bringing people together. I've seen success from humble startups to massive corporations. I take pride in all I've done so far and excited for what's to come. Learn more about me or what it means to slay dragons.

Adventures

Speaker & Storyteller.

I've been known to inspire, educate, and speak on topics such as UX, AI, and Community Building. I've helped others find their spark and navigate their life and career by sharing practical, real world advice through my own interesting life experiences.

Product Designer.

Informed UX. Intuitive UI. Solid Product.

"Dragons" are complex, challenging problems that need to be slayed. From startups to industry titans I've been largely successful at solving user problems and business challenges across a variety of apps and platforms. I believe in building solid, human-centered solutions driven by research, informed by data, and inspired by instinct. I leverage insight and experience to help navigate the course from idea to product, delivering end-to-end solutions enjoyed by millions. Take a look.


the work

At SiriusXM, I proudly helped build the new website experience. From customer account management tools to the re-imagining of SiriusXM Sports, I worked across Design, Product, Marketing, and Dev teams to launch the Phoenix design system and increase multiple metrics. See it

Investing with friends and family

Tribevest

In my previous role at Tribevest, I led growth and UX initiatives across the company's multiple products and platforms to raise customer acquisition, retention, and general usability. We helped thousands level-up their personal lives by making group-investing easier, seamless, and fun.

What they're saying
  • "Kasey is by far one of the most talented designers I've ever had a chance to work with. He has the unique ability to balance the unpredictable, emerging needs of the moment while also being able to lead more broad and strategic initiatives. I couldn't recommend Kasey more highly and am confident that any team is better with him as a part of it."

    Zach Bowers

    Co-Founder/CTO, Tribevest

  • "Kasey is an amazing designer and collaborator. He really elevated the design while working on a big project at K2P. He has vision and perspective but is open to feedback and ready to iterate."

    Beth McHugh

    Director of Product, K2P

  • "Kasey is a rare find! He has a unicorn mentality and is able to see the big picture of things, while solving the smaller, more complex problems at the same time"

    Anthony Wiktor

    Creative Director, Ad Victorem

Highly Experienced.

    Austin Tech & User Experience

    Founder

    When COVID 19 turned our lives upside down, I sadly had to walk away from District Creatives and I moved cross-country, twice. On my way down to Austin, Texas in August of 2021 I decided it was time to kick-start another community initiatve. Following in the footsteps of District Creatives, which I loved so much, I named this new group Austin Tech & Experience group or simply, ATX. Using the knowledge gained from District Creatives over the last four years we are growing quickly! We host continuous coffee club meetups on East 6th St every month, as well as happy hours, socials, presentations and more. Learn more about ATX

  • District Creatives

    Co-Founder / Organizer

    Vincent Wanga and I founded the meetup group District Creatives and grew it to nearly 3,000 members. It is a fellowship of Designers, Developers, Artists, Architects, Photographers, Craftsmen and Creatives alike. We strongly promote and curate a diverse and collaborative community of like-minded professionals and innovators. We emphasize and encourage strong member engagement, casual networking, creative social events, inclusivity, mentoring, peer collaboration and civic pride. Our group is open to all, without bias or pretension, even if your creativity is not professionally defined, so long as your interests align. Although I have stepped away from District Creatives, the group still lives. Learn more about District Creatives.

Dreamer. Doer.

Proud endeavors & side projects.

Over the years I've frequently been involved with hosting a variety of community-building events, workshops, portfolio reviews, podcasting, happy hours, building digital tools and much more.
