Coberlin “Coby” Brownell is the Program Director for the Information Technology Institute.

Brownell brings to the role a strong background in both arts and technology, and a deep passion for mentoring.  A UVM graduate and former digital asset analyst, brand development expert, and strategist at Jager Di Paola Kemp for clients including Burton, Nike, XBOX 360, Merrell, and Timex, for many years Brownell has devoted his spare time to working with local youth groups and art galleries.  Currently Brownell is a full-time mid-career graduate student at Champlain College’s Emergent Media Center.

Coby is excited to carry on GIV’s tradition of bringing the newest developments in the IT world to Vermont high school students, and has plans to include Champlain College’s new 3-D printer in the 2012 Information Technology Institute.
