"Welcome" Jeremy Paterson
ACCAD is pleased to welcome Jeremy Patterson as a System Developer. Jeremy is not new to ACCAD; he has been teaching as a lecturer for 15 years now and will continue to teach Interactive Arts Media I and II, in addition to his System developer role.
"ACCAD has been my biggest influence over the years. Everything I know came from being part of the center. It's an honor and dream to now be a part of the future of ACCAD. It's honestly still unreal to me. I look forward to contributing through my areas of expertise and finding the next great things to explore and bring to life. In short, and in terms I normally use: I'm stoked!"

Jeremy has years of recognized expertise as a skilled multi-disciplinary expert who crafts integrated, interactive experiences for humans of all ages. His previous work through McGraw-Hill, Genentech, and Cartoon Network has been experienced and enjoyed by people in classrooms, living rooms, and doctor's offices across the country. Additionally, Jeremy is a published author and speaker on topics related to extended reality and its design and application in pediatrics.
Before his time at The Ohio State University, Jeremy was the Lead of User Experience Technology Research and Development at the Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital. While at the Research Institute Nationwide Children's Hospital, Jeremy was instrumental in spearheading advanced technology projects at the organization, culminating in notable virtual and mixed reality endeavors, digital and hardware cross-over projects, and 4 US patents. Voxel Bay is the most significant of these endeavors, having been the subject of a presentation and publication at ACM SIGGRAPH 2016, a finalist selectee at South by Southwest Interactive 2017, and the Miracle Maker of the Year recipient from the Children's Miracle Network.
Jeremy is also co-founder of LittleSeed, Inc, a Columbus, Ohio based venture that specializes in extended-reality products for pediatric healthcare, with Voxel Bay as one entry in the company's growing product portfolio. Previous to his work at Nationwide Children's Hospital, Jeremy led the research, design, and development efforts on new initiatives at Netscape and America Online.
Additionally, Jeremy is a pacer. If you see him walking around in circles, do not be alarmed: it's normal and no need for panic. He is just thinking. He is convinced this trait is genetic, as both of his kids exhibit the same behavior. Additionally, Jeremy watches cartoons obsessively, as all mature adults should. He is also a well of useless knowledge. On the side, he designs and fabricates plastic toys and figurines.
