Christopher Marotta is an Occupational Therapist currently working at the Henry Viscardi School in Albertson, NY. He has gained a wealth of experience throughout his career, working in many pediatric and adult settings, including St. Charles Hospital. However, Christopher's passion is assistive technology.

He earned his B.S.in Occupational Therapy and Health Sciences from SUNY Stony Brook in 2002 and returned to complete his M.S. in Occupational Therapy from Misericordia University in 2012.
He is currently pursuing his Doctorate in Occupational Therapy with Touro University. Christopher is a co-leader of the NYC chapter of Makers Making Change, an organization that links AT makers with people in need for adaptations and assistive technology devices.
