Digital Content Manager

Pittsburgh, PA


As Digital Content Manager, Seth seeks to connect with students, alumni, and faculty across the Integrated Innovation Institute to develop stories worth sharing. His role primarily serves the needs and goals of the Master of Integrated Innovation for Products and Services (MIIPS) program at the Pittsburgh campus, but you’ll find his fingerprints across iii’s website and social media channels.

Prior to joining the Integrated Innovation Institute, Seth worked in marketing and communications with the undergraduate admissions office at CMU, where he showcased the academic and non-academic opportunities offered by the University to a broad and diverse audience. He’s also worked for tech giant Apple conducting market research & developing training procedures.

Seth's claim to fame at the Institute is as it's tallest member, though he never played basketball. You’re likely to find Seth exploring the unique cultural neighborhoods of Pittsburgh by bicycle. He’s an avid cyclist and he commutes by bike to the Institute year-round – even in the snow! He kindly requests that you offer him 4 feet if you decide to pass in your vehicle. Though he’s a Pittsburgh transplant, he considers Pittsburgh home and is watching with pride as the steel city transforms itself from “hell with the lid off” into a mecca for technology and innovation.
