Summer Staff

Digital Media Academy hires hundreds of tech educators from all over Northern America to lead, empower, encourage, and inspire the thousands of students who come through our summer camps each year.

Many of our summer staff have grown up with us – starting as campers and going on to become teachers assistants, instructors, and camp directors.

Corporate Leadership

Our year-round staff holds down Digital Media Academy's corporate fort in Los Gatos, CA and Vancouver, BC. We’re a crew of gaming enthusiasts, photographers, makers, tinkerers, techies, film junkies, and kids-at-heart. Our collective passion for inspiring the youth to excel in science, engineering, technology, and digital arts is fueled by curiosity and our own desire to provide the best possible experiences for students all over the world.
