Ken Heyman used both his interests of visual communications and problem solving in dual roles as Product Developer and Senior 3D Modeler at Immersion Corp. In this fast-paced technology company, he wore many hats, and was promoted 3 times, starting out as a medical illustrator and ending as a Product Developer and patent holder. With responsibilities under the Director of Business Development, he created new product concepts, performed return on investment analysis, and assessed market needs. In his production role, he created artwork for marketing, branding, and virtual 3D environments. In his 10 years at Immersion Corporation he contributed to the completion of 25 computer simulation products, helping grow the company from 3 million in annual revenue in 1999 to a market capitalization of over 100 million in 2009.
In addition to this work experience he is Adjunct Faculty at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine’s Art as Applied to Medicine Department as a guest speaker and lecturer. He is also a graduate of this department, where he learned to apply his love of visual communication to solve complex problems by earning a Master’s Degree with a thesis on developing 3D computer models of embryos using MRI data to unfold the mysteries of developmental biology.
Heyman founded Living Solutions, a company that provided home environment assessments and home improvements to seniors to enable them to stay in their own homes rather than moving to nursing homes. Heyman managed services to clients, finance and operations, designed, and supervised contractors and vendors.
