I moved to California after graduating from Virginia Tech in 2013 and discovered a love for emerging technologies, art, and exploring. From 2013 – 2017, I worked at Microsoft in Mountain View, CA as a virtual and augmented reality developer advocate. In January of 2017, I joined the startup High Fidelity, an open source virtual reality platform where I lead the engineering team for content development and developer tools as both lead engineer and manager. In March 2019, I left High Fidelity to join Mozilla, where I work on the Mixed Reality team in bringing the immersive web to life through Hubs. As of January 2020, I am on leave from working full-time at Mozilla while I complete a technology policy fellowship with the Aspen Institute in San Francisco.
Immersive and emerging technologies give us the freedom to find new ways of exploring and learning from the world around us and each other. Understanding and experimenting with today’s creative tools at intersection of programming, art, and policy enables a new sense of expression and self-discovery, a journey that I’m excited to be on and delighted to be able to share with you through my blog.
