Getting to know me.


We Break Things is a company of one, me, Casey. If I were the queen of somewhere, you could say it’s the “royal we” but in this case, it’s my company name.

This page is for you to get a little glimpse of me, personally.

I grew up in a small town in Northern California, and then lived in very urban San Francisco for 20 years, so I’m well-acquainted with the tech industry. In 2010, we bought a house and I moved to Portland OR. After the urban crush of a city, the quiet streets and trees of Portland are lovely. Plus, we have the highest number of breweries in the US.

When I’m not breaking things, I like to play disc golf, ride vintage Vespas, dig around in my garden & fight thistles, hang out in ski lodges in the winter, and camp near rivers or lakes in the summer.

I’m pretty outgoing – also creative, passionate, opinionated, snarky, and weird. Ask any of my clients and you’ll hear about my strong work ethic, eagerness to share ideas and participate in meetings, and meticulous attention to detail. For my work history, check out the Missions page.
