Hi! I'm Ari Kissiloff. I've been in the area since 1986, originally hailing from Manhattan, NY.

After moving to Ithaca, I started a business called Public Communications, Inc. which has been growing since 1992. We started off publishing a free monthly 'zine (14850 Magazine), operating a copy center with a computer lab for the public, and designing printed materials - which was located downtown on the Ithaca Commons (in a location where Simeon's restaurant is now). We've changed our focus with the times, specializing now in web page programming & design, computer consulting, and creating on-line and print marketing campaigns.

I've been teaching here at Ithaca College (in the Department of Strategic Communication) since 1997, and in that time have taught a wide variety of courses, including:

  • Computer Applications in Organizations
  • Organizational Writing and Publishing
  • Instructional and Promotional Video
  • Presentation Media Design and Production
  • Web Sites that Work
  • Organizational Media Campaign
  • Corporate Communication Media
  • Interactive Multimedia
  • Text and Graphics
  • Video Practicum
  • Digital Journalism
  • Introduction to Macintosh
  • Organizational Video Design and Production
  • Web Design
  • Advanced Web Design
  • S'Park
  • Exploring the Options
  • Ithaca Seminar: Designing Compelling Presentations
  • Ithaca Seminar: Park Communication- Interpreting and navigating our nation’s natural and cultural resources
  • ICC Capstone "Connecting the Dots"

I have lots of hobbies, but my favorite one is my current goal of trying to visit all of America's National Parks. I've already been to over 300, and I have a blog which details my adventures there. http://www.acadiatozion.com/
