Hi, I'm Casey.
I use evidence-based practices to help founders and leaders be more effective at work and in life.
An evidence-based coaching practice
My approach is based on Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT), a framework within behavioral psychology that focuses on how thoughts and feelings influence behavior.
ACT has 600+ randomized controlled trials supporting its underlying theory and practical application. It has been utilized in clinical settings as an evidence-based therapy, and non-clinical settings, like performance coaching for Olympic athletes.
If you'd like to learn more about ACT and how it relates to startups, you can check out this article I wrote for Every.to.
In their words...
Founder at Every
"I've been working with Casey for over a year now, and there has been a significant impact on my work. I'd recommend him to any founder who is looking to grow their business while staying connected to meaning."
Ex-Founder at Vidcode (YC S16)
"I'd recommend Casey's retreats to anyone, especially founders worried about how to align their company to their values and trying to figure out their next steps."
Founder at Ophelia (YC W20)
"Casey is a master at cutting to the core of what matters and getting you to think differently about things that have been personal obstacles for a while."
Founder at Hodge
"Casey's retreat was a much-needed and refreshing pause to explore not just where my company is, but where I am and who I am relative to my startup."
Product Lead at Uniswap
"Working with Casey was a fantastic opportunity for me to explore my entrepreneurial journey in a safe space. The cadence of listening, feeling, and expressing in a non-judgmental manner helped me to identify parts of me that often get ignored otherwise."
Founder at The Browser Company
"Casey's retreat was an incredible experience– it was rejuvenating and contemplative, and allowed me to process a lot of the last several months of being a founder.”
You may be a fit you are....
-A founder of a startup looking to grow into your changing role
-A leader looking to deepen a sense of calling in your work, so that you can prevent burnout and better engage your team
-An executive looking to make better decisions amidst stress and uncertainty
-An exited founder exploring next steps amidst high-optionality
I'm a founder and executive coach.
In 2014, I founded Hacker Paradise, a community-based travel company, and bootstrapped it to over half a million in annual revenue over the course of 3 years.
After exiting Hacker Paradise, I took a sabbatical, then joined Xenon Partners, a fund that acquires and operates B2B SaaS companies. I also worked on a bunch of side projects.
In 2019, I was exposed to ACT through its literature on values, and started exploring its application to the world of work. Since then, I've been working in consultation with several psychologists to adapt ACT to working with leaders in the startup world.
Outside of coaching, I write and explore projects around secular meaning-making.
Oh, and I think you're awesome 😉
