Howard is an Artist, Educator and Technologist, his work focuses on the use of multiple technologies and techniques as a means of study and application for academics and research. This includes technology use as an educational tool for creating unique learning experiences, and  environments for training and teaching. Many of his projects have involved real-world data, 3D graphics, simulations, and interactive media. He has managed and designed numerous projects using many methods from Waterfall to Extreme Programming(XP) to Agile, and often uses instructional design techniques, and User Experience (UX) practices to provide clients with technology solutions that fit their project goals and objectives.

He received a BFA from Ringling College of Art and Design, a Masters of Education in Instructional Technology, and a Doctorate in Engineering from the University of South Florida. His work and installations have been shown in Boston, Connecticut, Miami, Tampa, and virtual exhibits. Most recently his 3d models and animations can be seen in the augmented reality app (publicly available on Android Play Store and Apple Store) ARTours Clearwater

His unique skillset has helped him to develop the Advanced Visualization Center at the University of South Florida, which serves as a campus-wide resource for implementing and developing technology. Howard's work has also been featured in the journal Science,, Siggraph,, and Fox News. He was also selected by the Center for Digital Education as a Top 30 Technologists, Transformers and Trailblazers.
