Immersive Technologies

I worked on the award winning HTC Vive as a Senior Prototype Developer. I helped create dozens of experiences to test, validate, and inspire people to embrace and experience what VR is about. I worked across the pacific ocean from Seattle to San Francisco to Taiwan in order to get the HTC Vive from a idea to product.

After leaving HTC I co-founded Doghead Simulations as the CTO and created rumii, a virtual reality collaboration and conferencing software. We shipped across PC VR, Mobile VR, Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, Mobile and Desktop using Unity. 

Currently I am working as a Immersive Experiences Developer at Valorem Reply creating custom Unity experiences for Hololens 1 and 2.
