Bio

I’m a motivated person that’s driven by success. Prior to me coming to City Tech I worked as a telecom specialist in the financial district of Manhattan. After I was laid off, I started my on telecom company. I’ve been very fortunate to find success with my business; however web design is my passion and the field that I wish to pursue. I pride myself with setting high goals and I also reward myself when they are achieved. I think that it is very important to push yourself to accomplish things that may seem far away. A big part of getting there is finding a support group that can assist when needed. After completing the Emerging Media degree program at City Tech I hope to move own to create the next Face book (before it went public).

My Courses

Ins and Outs Of Physical Computing

Ins and Outs Of Physical Computing

An introduction to interactive technology with a focus on how we use technology to express ourselves and interact with our environment. This class will combine a hands-on exploration of sensors and microcontrollers with concepts of interaction design employing a structured design process. Students will work on creative group projects and provide on-line documentation of their work. An array of sensing technologies from simple switches to video tracking will be introduced. Students will use the simple programming of microcontrollers to process incoming data from sensors.

Introduction to Interactive 3D Environments Programming

Introduction to Interactive 3D Environments Programming

This course provides students with technical foundations and opportunity to work with state of the art virtual reality (VR) systems and interactive 3D environments. The foundations covered in this course apply to computer games, 3D film production, immersive environments, and virtual scenery for live performance. Students will be prepared to apply and extend basic skills in modeling, scripting and programming. Emphasizes production, teamwork, analysis of interactive 3D systems, and applications-driven user experiences with assessment of aesthetic orientation.

Topics and Perspectives in Emerging Media

Topics and Perspectives in Emerging Media

This course provides an introduction to the study and analysis of emerging technologies and how this influences practical process. Students will examine how technologies have evolved historically as well as develop perspectives on they would best be used in the future. Major topics will include computing history, human-computer interaction, computers and culture, and the ethical and social implications of new technologies. In the lab component of the course, students will learn to employ methods of documentation currently in use at research institutions and in private industry in order to place research being done in a wider context.

LIB 1201 – Research & Documentation for the Information Age – Section 9952

LIB 1201 – Research & Documentation for the Information Age – Section 9952

In this course we will explore issues in research and documentation for text (in print and online), images, sound, and multimedia. You will investigate where information comes from and how it is organized in both traditional and emerging media. We will examine the ethics of information use and determine how to critically evaluate sources. Throughout the course, you will create and present research and documentation projects using traditional and emerging media and technologies. This is a writing-intensive course. You should expect to spend 4-6 hours outside of class time preparing for class each week.

Introduction to Interactive Media Technologies Production Practices

Introduction to Interactive Media Technologies Production Practices

A hands-on introduction to the applied principles and production techniques used in interactive media development. Students will be introduced to the basic theory, practices, and technology necessary for success in digital media courses, including imaging, sound, video, and animation, as well as, interactive, networked, and physical computing technologies. The structure of this course emphasizes an integrated and creative approach to interactive media with detailed instruction and practice in the technical aspects of production that go hand in hand with critical academic thinking.
