Casper also served as the liaison between DOA and the State Legislature.

Before his appointment to DOA, Casper worked in Governor Doyle's Office from 2003 to 2009. Most recently, Casper served as the Governor's Senior Policy Director, working on various public policy initiatives focusing on the executive budget, the Grow Wisconsin economic development initiatives, education issues and health care expansion efforts, such as BadgerCare Plus.

Casper has also held positions in the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services, the Legislature and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He earned a B.A. in Urban Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and a M.A. in Public Affairs and Administration from UW-Madison.
