Meet Mitchell Faherty
VC INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNICAL SPECIALIST
What I Do
I manage a team of student employees that work with instructors to produce recordings of live lectures in 9 of ASU’s lecturer spaces across 3 buildings. This work often entails supporting faculty with AV issues that may arise in the classroom, as well as on the Canvas LMS.
What I Did
Prior to ASU I worked for General Dynamics as a contractor for 2 years in the publication department working alongside engineers to produce their government proposals. I also worked for the University of Advancing Technology (UAT) producing video and photo resources for the communications and marketing department for 2 years. I then worked for A.T. Still University for 5 years producing all of the Mesa campuses video educational material for students within the IT department; in addition to all the internal photo and video content for the Marketing department. Each of these roles often extended into troubleshooting IT and AV systems as well.
What I Studied
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Digital Video as well as a partial Masters in Technology leadership from UAT. I’m currently enrolled in the Masters of Science in Graphic Information Technology program here at ASU; with an emphasis in 360 video production and project management.
What I Like
I’m an Eagle Scout to my core so I enjoy the outdoors, photography, gardening, and hunting. I’m always working on some sort of DIY project across many engineering disciplines, including 3D printing. When I’m not doing one of those things you’ll find me playing a PC game or working on something creative like playing Dungeons and Dragons with a group of people, painting 3d printed models, or editing my images.
