I have had a rich career in the forefront of virtual reality over the last decade. From been involved in 100+ VR/AR projects, being head hunted to Silicon Valley when the industry was in its infancy to build AR technology valued at $300M. My experience has given me great insight into cutting edge technology and the industry.
Using my insight, I co-founded Equal Reality, where I am currently Chief Technology Officer. I have been internationally awarded and recognized as a leader in the Virtual Reality Industry, featured in over 70 publishing on TV, Radio and News Articles internationally.
Being inclusive and an ally is at the core of who I am. My company Equal Reality uses Virtual Reality creating empathy training in virtual reality. We put people in the perspective of vulnerable groups to experience discrimination.
We partner with psychologist, behaviour experts and industry leaders to work with vulnerable groups covering topics include sexism, racism, ageism, ableism, bullying, sexual harassment, power and exclusion and difficult conversation. Used on every continent except Antarctica, by the worlds largest organisations from Universities, Military, Government, Tech Companies, Banks, Law Firms, Accountants to High Schools.
