Bridging continents with AR/VR

Since encountering AR/VR for the first time, I’ve been driven to be at the forefront of this exciting technology with its tremendous potential to shape new digital experiences and bring people closer together.

I believe the future of these technologies is built on understanding how people use new technology and finding answers to meaningful questions that identify the benefits of AR/VR for impactful experiences.

After calling Australia my home for many years and now being back in Europe, I am especially invested in finding ways for people to feel connected with loved ones who are far away. My goal is to explore future AR/VR applications that delight and inspire in meaningful ways, unlocking how people can develop rich social experiences even across continents.
