Susan Buck is a programmer and digital media designer who earned her undergraduate degree in Multimedia Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. During her time there, she worked on a project supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop educational applications to be used alongside internationally distributed planetarium shows based on radio astronomy.
She then went on to complete her Master's at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program where she worked side by side with technologists, theorists, engineers, designers and artists from all over the world; she also learned how to solder.
Since then she has been the head developer at Photojojo.com both full time out of San Francisco, and now remotely as she pursues interests around the country. In this role she has tackled a wide gamut of topics: web programming, server management, instructional writing, e-commerce, team management and interface design / optimization.
Mixed in with the latter roles, Susan has also done several stints with Duke University's Talent Identification Program, most recently teaching Filmmaking to academically gifted High School students in Summer camps at Chapman University.
This past Spring Susan was teaching Information Graphics and Web Production at the University of Miamia and this Fall she will be instructing at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Design.
