My passion is sharing knowledge and inspiring people to explore their curiosities. As a life-long learner, I’ve found that assimilating information is not enough. I also need to break down complex topics and present them to others. Doing so locks that knowledge into my memory and builds a more tacit understanding of the material.
I create courses in my primary fields of interest:
· Virtual Reality (Including VR, AR, 360, MR, etc.)
· VR Filmmaking: Narrative Storytelling in Virtual Environments
· Screenwriting, especially writing for VR
· VR Product Management
· Business Management
· Technology in Education
· Various Other Business & Entertainment Topics
Born and raised in the United States, I got my undergrad degree in Business. After a great career in the business world, I went back to school in France getting my MBA/MSc in International Business. Then it was off to the United Kingdom where I used Virtual Reality as part of my research while studying for my PhD.
Now back in the USA, working in the Entertainment industry for a studio in Hollywood, California.
Curiosity is your brain’s way of saying, “Hey you! Go learn something!”
