Speaking Engagements


Augmented World Expo (AWE), "How to Design Connected Realities in Spatial Computing By Flipping Pancakes"

This session is a deep dive into designing AR-based experiences on both 2D (iOS) screens and 3D (Magic Leap One) devices, as well as best practices for shared multi-user presence. I will be focusing the talk on the benefits of designing a flexible product, and the struggles with combining 2D and 3D user interfaces.

Game Developers Conference (GDC), "XR R&D: From the Frontlines"

Cancelled due to COVID-19. A micro-talk series in the VRDC component of GDC on the topic of designing spatial computing experiences. My presentation was specifically using Magic Leap Studios' Pancake Pal's Project to speak on my experience designing multi-user cross-platform applications.
