Editor of Nunavut News since 2016, Casey has worked in journalism for more than 20 years, and with Nunavut News since 2011. His work has taken him across the North: to every community in Nunavut's Qikiqtani and Kivalliq regions; to Yellowknife, NWT; to Whitehorse, Yukon, for the 2012 Arctic Winter Games; and to Fairbanks, Alaska, for the 2014 Arctic Winter Games. Casey's local editorials were named the best in Canada in 2018 (bilingual education in Nunavut) and 2019 (Government of Nunavut toxicity), and he is the two-time recipient of Canada's top national award for community newspaper reporting, most recently in 2015 for his work covering Iqaluit's dump fire. He was the project developer for NNSL's 2016 Arctic Winter Games website and app, which won regional honours for best online project.
