Zocalo Public Square is an idea-junkie’s heaven – it’s a great series of lectures, essays, videos, and all sorts of things to get your braingears cranking on a variety of topics. And now, I’m proud to say that Modern Hiker is a small part of that community.
As part of an upcoming lecture by Cheryl Strayed on her journey on the Pacific Crest Trail, I was asked to write a short essay on the importance of solitude and how I find it here in the city. Today, my contribution was published alongside a few other great writers, and you can head over to Zocalo to read them all.
His stories for Modern Hiker have brought regional and national attention, and have been featured on Good Morning America, NPR, and the Associated Press.
Casey is also an award-winning television writer-producer, and was Series Producer of pivot's TakePart Live and Head Writer of G4's Attack of the Show.
