Casey Riske

AIA, Senior Associate, BIM Manager

Seattle Studio

Casey spends most of his time helping people, and he loves it. “I like to think of myself as an educator. For me, it’s always been about giving other people the chance to succeed.” As Miller Hull’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager, Casey consistently advises staff on digital collaboration, software, and where technology and the design process intersects. He has also been an ACE (Architecture, Construction, Engineering) mentor for the past 15 years, and teaches BIM classes at the University of Washington, seeking opportunities outside of work to make a difference in people’s lives. This passion extends to his significant work within the community, where Casey’s interest in affordable housing and equity propelled him to swing hammers at Habitat for Humanity and Rebuilding Together. He additionally volunteers at Facing Homelessness, The Block Project, and Seattle Architects Without Borders, and serves as a Co-House Captain for the Miller Hull fundraising team.

Although Casey was raised in a rural part of the Midwest and wasn’t exposed to cities or formal architecture until later in life, his interest in building started on his family farm. “The hands-on tasks of fixing, constructing, and troubleshooting to keep the ranch going prepped me for the technical aspects of problem-solving in architecture.” Taking this tactile work and applying it to the digital space has greatly enriched Casey’s practice, rooting the computerized in the physical, and enabling him to become a virtual master builder.
