Benjamin HuckabyLead Interaction Designer/Developer Academic Technology Innovation
Benjamin (“Ben”) Huckaby is a Lead Interaction Designer/Developer with Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications (DELTA) at NC State University. He works in the Academic Technology Innovation unit at DELTA. Ben started as a part-time staff on the New Media Development team in 2006, eventually joining the team as a full-time member in January of 2007.
A lifelong NC State fan he graduated from NC State with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Bachelor of Arts in Art & Design with a focus on animation and digital media, along with a Spanish minor. Ben’s interest and passion lies in the use of games and game design principles (aka “Gamification”) for education and he has been a part of several efforts at DELTA to this end. 3D modeling and animation is also a key interest, whether it is for a real-time rendering environment such as a game or a pre-rendered animation.
Outside of work Ben greatly enjoys road cycling, disc golf, DJing, and tailgating with friends and co-workers (which are really the same thing) at NC State football games.
