Casey Catto, Fabrication engineer
Holding a Bachelor of Science in Show Production & Touring from Orlando’s very own Full Sail University, during Casey's education she was awarded four different Course Director Awards in Lighting Concepts and Design, Audio Electronics, Audio Measurement Systems, and Installation Technologies.
Out of school, and ever the hard worker, she applied her literacy in schematics and CAD, as well as her proficiency with soldering, crimping, and assembling custom audio, video, control, and network cables, to begin working as both a Fabrication Technician and as an Integration Technician. Cutting her teeth in the industry while wearing several hats enabled her to become incredibly well versed in the worlds of both commercial and residential AV fabrication, installation, and testing.
Eventually discovered her flare for the realm of live displays and exhibits, and being a strong advocate for a clean and organized work environment, Casey moved up the ranks of Exhibit Technician, eventually taking on the role of Manager of Exhibit Maintenance before joining us at Crafted Design.
Casey's reputation for efficiency, applying her experience in fabrication and testing, and leading project teams makes her an undeniably invaluable member of the team here at Crafted Design.
