About Me

Tales from the 2.9 — Casey Palmer

As the man behind Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad, I’m a husband of one and father of two just east of downtown Toronto, sharing the stories of everything we get up to.

But as the man behind that, I’m just a guy trying to balance my passion with my family and the work that keeps them fed so I can give them everything I can to lead the best lives possible.


I started this site because I’ve always loved telling stories, and though I’ve come a long way from the short stories I wrote in high school and the LiveJournal I started in 2002, I keep pushing to get even better at it, never quite satisfied with how far I get.

But it’s taken a long time to establish this balance, with each part of my life playing a crucial role in making me who I am.

The Many Sides of Casey Palmer

Sarah, my wife, takes on the emotional load of the family, thinking up much of what we need long before I do. I’ve become a better Dad with her help, but there’s no way I could create all this content without her.

My kids brought me more depth to everything I do, giving me a reason to make sure that what I create has real purpose behind it because time is very finite and I want to use it all as best as I can.

And of course, there’s all the work I put my time into, whether it’s all the models and spreadsheets I manage by day or the content I grind on when working after dark—I obsess over how good I can get, always rethinking, retooling and refining until I reach a result that’s simply perfect.

But though all this helps define me, there’s still so much going on, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! You can read, hear and see my exploits on my portfolio page, or drop me a line on social media or through the contact form below!

I look forward to hearing from you!
