What’s on your desk? Casey Peevy
Technically speaking, the most interesting things on Casey Peevy’s desk aren’t on his desk. They’re on the work stand behind his desk. That’s where you’ll find the gels and makeup and tools he uses to create burns, scrapes, gunshot wounds and even rashes, all in the name of helping Brandman nursing students.
Peevy is the simulation specialist for the Immersive Learning and Simulation Center in the Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing in Irvine. When a member of the nursing faculty needs to show what a gunshot would looks like, they come to him and he uses his skills as a certified moulage artist to create what ever they need.
“If I can see it, I can make it,” says Peevy, who uses his computer to track down images of everything from motorcycle accidents to IED explosions and the wounds they leave. “I’m really into realism,” he says, showing how the gel “skin” around a wound smooths to the thinnest possible layer.
