As an avid and passionate underwater explorer since 1989, Casey has been part of numerous expeditions to explore and document some of the planets most remote and challenging landscapes including flooded cave systems, virgin ocean reefs and historic shipwrecks.  Casey currently serves as Project Director for the Woodville Karst Plain Project (WKPP) and has been involved in planning and executing some of the most logistically complicated underwater cave expeditions in the world including the current world record penetration into Florida’s Wakulla Springs Cave System at more than 5 miles (8km) requiring more than 28 hours underwater. Casey currently directs the 100 member WKPP dive team in their efforts to connect the Wakulla Springs Cave System to the ocean. Casey is a fellow of the Explorers Club and keeps busy with exploration and research projects in New Zealand, Australia, Italy, Philippines and Mexico in addition to his full time responsibilities managing D3 Diving LLC and advising Suex Srl, Italy.  When he isn’t underwater, Casey enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. The challenge of exploration and being part of a team of equally dedicated explorers working to accomplish the seemingly impossible is, in the end, what truly motivates and drives him to explore.
