For over ten years, Artie worked in the interactive industry as a designer, developer, project manager, user researcher and product manager. His work included digital solutions for a diverse set of firms including toy maker Hasbro, Inc., Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s innovative Bioinformatics Research Center, Graeter’s Ice Cream, Aplia Learning and Thomson Publishing/Cengage Learning. Through leading inter-disciplinary teams in the creation of digital products and platforms, Artie saw the positive transformative effect interactive media can have across all disciplines.
This experience fuels a passion for engaging with diverse students in exploring and coming to grips with the ramifications of interactive media in their field of pursuit. His current research, design, development and consulting work also explores this transformative effect.
