Company
Development

I have created multiple products and companies with the goal of providing delight and utility to others. I'm currently focused on building Seene Inc to help people create their own 3D content for photography, gaming and VR. I am also a cofounder of digital product incubation company Harmonypark, and the Grok Institute of Digital Art.

Product Design
& STRATEGY

My interest is focused on creating a greater connection between the digital and physical worlds that we inhabit. I'm a Webby Award winner in Net Art, Webby Honouree in Experimental and Innovative Mobile Product Design and Webby Nominee for Best Device Camera Usage. 

Human Computer Interaction

Helping people to perform complex tasks by making them simple, familiar and fun has been a consistent thread in my career. I have worked to help people capture the physical world in 3D, to manage and understand time as a perishable commodity, to improve group decision making and to design and develop digital content without knowing how to code. 

Mainstream mobile 3D scanning and photography

 

Seene uses computer vision algorithms to understand the world in 3D. The app has been downloaded 1.5 million times since its launch in October 2013. Our goal is to become the universal way people capture 3D content and put the data to work in photography, gaming and VR. We have offices in London and San Francisco.

Obvious Engineering is a research & development-driven computer vision software company with a focus on consumer products.

We have developed a portfolio of technologies for use on low-powered mobile devices in real-time applications. We enable these devices to locate themselves in space, map visual environments, and recreate in 3D what is seen through the camera, turning a standard smartphone into a 3D scanner without the use of additional hardware or off-device processing.

Unreleased - Procedural AR-T Creation Framework

3D Augmented Reality Art
3D Augmented Reality Art

About:
An AR art making framework built in Unity and designed to attach 3D content and interaction to predefined physical objects. Devised as a series of patches that can be configured to create 3D primitives, add and select object textures, define interaction control (touch, movement, voice), and enable animation and evolution of content based upon user participation. This project is unreleased.
