While using the same tool set, I've had the opportunity to work not only on games but multiple notable entities such as DARPA and the DOD. More recently, I was on the leadership team with a startup dedicated to advancing Holographic Hardware, Software, Generative AI, and Open AI technologies. This diverse range of experiences has played a crucial role for me to assist in leading companies and teams to stay at the forefront of the latest technology.
