New Media Teaching Artist Rick Stemm is a game designer, playwright, educator, and community leader. He moved from Madison, WI to San Antonio in 2011 to work as an educational games designer. He has written and produced shows, video games, and multimedia projects that engage and interact with their audiences, while also learning to work for himself.
