The Leopard

Casey Hansen
Casey Hansen was born on March 26, 2002, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Casey has lived in Utah his whole life and has never moved to a different house. If Casey could live anywhere in the world, he would live in one of three places. These include, Fairbanks, Alaska, Orlando, Florida, and Sydney, Australia. Casey would like to live in Alaska the most because of his interest in ancient life such as dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals. Casey's favorite dinosaur is a Pachyrhinosaurus which is related to Triceratops used to live in what was modern day Alaska. Casey has also been interested in other animals like the Japanese giant salamander and the endangered coelacanth.

Casey's dream is to become a blacksmith and make different types of  medieval weapons like swords, axes, and daggers, and sell them along with making steel dinosaur and dragon statues. Casey also wants to become a professional Pokémon player who participates in global tournaments. As well as enjoying playing video games like Overwatch, Pokémon, and Starcraft 2, Casey also makes cupcakes, cookies, cakes, and many other desserts for people he cares about. Casey has never liked the music most people listen to like rap or rock, instead he likes to listen to movie soundtracks from his favorite movies.

Caseys favorite movies include How to Train your Dragon 1 and 2, Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: Lost World, Jurassic World, and Lord of The Rings. Casey grew up watching these movies which later in life helped him decide what he had interested him. Casey also likes to draw dinosaurs, dragons, and Pokémon. All of Casey's drawings’  are stored inside his favorite dinosaur book called Dinosaur by Steve Brusatte. Casey's drawings show exactly what he has loved every since he was a boy, and since those younger days, not much has changed.
