Emma Casey is 97DW's Senior Digital Manager and oversees the digital side of client projects from start to finish. She has a colorful work history that includes higher education, law, small business consulting, lottery software, and studying language and literature in Peru. Emma is an intergral part of the 97 team, prone to guzzling insane amounts of coffee and getting an equally insane amount of work done throughout the workday.
Here's a short Q&A with Emma:

Q: What is your favorite thing to do outside of work? Why?
Concerts. Concerts. Music Festivals. Concerts. Nothing beats enjoying a musical experience and journey with a crowd of people and your friends all dancing by your side.
Q: What is an activity you share with your family?
Croquet. We play *extreme* croquet – have a whole book of rules and styles of play.
Text with her brother, Will, about a recent game he was playing their parents.
Q: If you could describe your skill-set in a song, what would it be? And why?
Little Wonder – David Bowie / 1997, Earthling
Beyond being the biggest hit off of the Earthling album, and the opener, Little Wonder is collection of different sounds, samplings and collaborations with other artists. It is whimsical, catchy, upbeat, exciting, observational, complex, and simply fun to listen to.
To me, my skill-set is similar – developed through many different types of positions, industries, company types. Every part of my experiences I take with me and continue to build and grow – tying everything together :)
Q: What makes you love Austin?
The *feeling* of the city – Austin is filled with an unquenchable atmosphere of excitement and energy. There is always something to do, new restaurants / bars to try and places to explore.
Q: If you were a color, what would you be, and why?
The color remaining after a full-day of screenprinting posters; a conglomeration of everything.

Q: If you could travel (or live) anywhere, where would you go?
Portugal &/or España.
