Background in XR
I have spent the past couple years involved in the concept of how Human-Computer Interaction and Immersive Computing are combined together.

I have built about four different realities myself, and have studied an infinite number more. I am familiar with 3D softwares and engines such as Maya, Blender, Unity, and Unreal3D. I have studied the impact and implementation of all of these applications in my studies, and applied them to everyday use in Web and Mobile interaction design.
