Passionate about VR and human computer interaction. I previously worked as CTO for Sensum – an emotional research company focused on correlating biometric data from physiological responses with emotions. I have been very passionate about devloping in VR ever since I presented with Sensum at CES in 2015 with a VR based demo and one of the oculus staff members came to try it out. I am eager to do my part to push this industry forward towards the next evolution of computers and how we use them.
Always thought of VR as one of the greatest things to do with a computer. I have a great passion for technology and automation, and work in a R&D as a technical manager. Also love making things come to life in the real world and in vr, I spend a lot of time modelling and coding machines and animations. I love creating things and making things better, and I’m excited to help built the community and the tools to bring people together and share all the craziness they can think off.
VR is cool… I mean really cool! I began my journey with Virtual Reality almost 3 years ago in Sensum – An emotional research company (which is also when I met Shane) by implementing their biometric data feeds into the Unity engine. I created a VR experience that would adapt its gameplay features and difficulty based on the players biometric response… Since then I have worked on multiple VR projects and am currently waist deep in all things AR and VR! I am truly excited to see how The Expanse adds to the social VR community and can not wait to see what you all come up with in the editor..
I started getting into VR in 2016 thinking I was jumping into the next level of gaming. I didn’t expect that a year later, I would be hosting and performing in events for users from around the world in social VR. VR has proven to be much more than a gaming platform and is bringing people together in ways we once thought possible only in science fiction. As a power user, I’ve been smack-dab in the middle of this new frontier for human interaction, experiencing the social dynamics between users in the metaverse first-hand. While I do play VR games still, hanging with my friends, creating and hosting events, and performing improv comedy or music in VR for the community have become my main activities. I’ve had time to really grow in VR, learning the ins-and-outs of event production and even dabbling in asset creation for avatars to represent myself and venues to perform in. I’m excited to bring my experience and insight to the Expanse and can’t wait to see how this new platform develops.
