Kasey is one of two founding members of Answer Engineering LLP. A creative engineer, dedicated team mate and inspiring leader by personality, his upbringing surrounded by heavy equipment, small general aviation pilots and motor sports, he quickly developed a lifelong passion for all things Legos and Star-Wars related as well as any concept that was mechanical in nature. He has worked on new aircraft development programs in the general, commercial, military and experimental aviation fields as well as space vehicles and systems. These passions drove him to pursue his education in the field of Engineering. After graduating from Idaho State University with his B.S. in Interdisciplinary Engineering, he went to work at the (then) aircraft start-up company Adam Aircraft Industries where he took part in as many facets and roles of aircraft development as he was allowed to; from napkin sketches and conceptual design of an idea to sub and full scale structural testing all the way through full FAA type certification. From there, he worked on several other aircraft prototype and development programs before founding Answer Engineering LLP with Dennis Olcott in 2012.
In 2005 Ashley Graduated from The University of Oregon and began a career of business management and operations. She has built and grown businesses including her own before joining Answer Engineering in 2016 as the Business Operations Coordinator. In her spare time she enjoy’s playing on the Answer Engineering soccer team, snowboarding, travel, and cooking!
