John M. Walker is the Director of Platform Technology at Wharton Interactive, overseeing the development and maintenance of the ARC (Alternate Reality Courseware), Wharton Interactive Marketplace, and Wharton Interactive SIMPL platforms.
Having joined the team as a QA Engineer in the early days of the Coronavirus Pandemic, John quickly pivoted to remote work and collaborated with the team to develop and test the first Wharton Interactive ARC game, 2020's "The Saturn Parable," in a matter of months. In the three years since, he has overseen (and performed) testing on the Entrepreneurship Game, Blue Sky Ventures, and Machine Learning for Business Decisions.
In September of 2022 John assumed the mantle of Wharton Interactive's Director of Platform Technology and is currently working to assemble a new Customer Success team.
In his spare time John likes to assemble and paint miniatures for tabletop games of all sorts and read Urban Fantasy novels.
PS. It's possible that in a former life he was a bear.
