Virtual Reality Evangelist/Educator

For those who wanted to see the slides from my talk, they can be found here -

I am a Full Stack Virtual Reality Artist, designer and developer. Cofounder of ARVR Academy, a nonprofit dedicated to providing education and open source teaching materials to communities that are under represented in the tech industry, specifically focusing on the Augmented and Virtual Reality industries. I am also a course developer at Udacity, teaching 360 Storytelling and Immersive media as part of the Virtual Reality Nanodegree. Mentor to Boost VR companies, and highly active in the Indie VR community.

In the past, I was creative director for a mobile health and fitness game. Sadly, that game wasn't Pokemon go, but it was still fun anyway.

Things I care about -

Diversity. Ethics. Privacy. The potential of VR to change the world for the better. Helping others find their voice as a VR creator. Social Harassment solutions.

Things you might want to talk to me about -

Social Harassment solutions in VR (aka how not to let one player destroy your community)
VR Storytelling!
360 film.
How to get started in VR.
VR or AR in general.
How not to make people motion sick in VR.
How to consider the long term implications of cutting edge technology.
How to make an impact in your own local tech industries through empowering education.
How to actually change your company's diversity numbers - not just talk the talk.
How to be a great ally.
Gaming. (Including my favorite VR Games)
Whether or not your original VR or AR product already has competitors out there.
VR Evangelism.
Because you would really enjoy funding an effective and impactful diversity nonprofit.
Because you just really like having interesting and stimulating conversations.
