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 examined an infinite number more. I am familiar with 3D softwares and engines such as Maya and Unity, along with Blender and Unreal3D. I have studied the impact and implementation of all of these applications in my university and abroad studies, and applied them to everyday use in personal VR projects, including music videos and puzzle games.
I’ve been designing for about 8 years now and programming for about four. My start was in graphic design, and slowly but surely I realized my real passion was a combination of software development, digital design, and innovative technologies. I was confounded by the amount of information out there I had to search for just to get by, so I decided to store it all in one place. I have such a passion for learning and understanding modern technology, I even decided to start a blog! My current joys are Games UX and VR Interaction Design, because they have such a direct correlation to human psychology and physiology.
I hope you enjoy what you read here!
