I'm fascinated with team chemistry and how a mix of different backgrounds and personality types can somehow congeal into a winning product or development team. I've been lucky to build and be a part of some amazing groups of innovative workers. How do you quickly understand what each person needs to do their best, feel rewarded and be respectful of work/life balance?
What would the ultimate NBA season ticket holder in-arena fan experience look like? How about a 3D scan of yourself or family, then at a later date you are presented with a commemorative full color branded 3D Lego of yourself? I got an opportunity to prototype just that kind of promotion.
I've spent much of my career as a catalyst for change and one to push the envelope not only of what an organization can do but doesn't belive they can. It is hard work changing a culture rooted in "old ways" and in some cases indecisiveness.
Facebook finally released just a glimpse into their Horizon's strategy with Workspace Beta. Here is a breakdown list of things I love and hate about this new platform.
I am lucky to have a bit of Forest Gump in me in that I have had a ton of interesting and odd opportunities in my life. One of them was when I played a coach on the pilot of Friday Night Lights.
One of the most fun and strange and wonderful projects I was able to work on was for Disney as they prepped to build a new Cinderella castle in Hong Kong.
I'm always game for scientific measurements of knowledge and creativity. This latest online test measures your verbal creativity and divergent thinking.
Dr. Robert Amato saved my brother's life 20 years ago when he battled Stage 4 testicular cancer. I discovered today that Dr. Amato passed on 2 years ago but left a legacy of helping patients and families like ours. Thank you sir.
What a difference a year makes. To celebrate getting out of the house, shooting some fireworks and enjoying some family time, I built an augmented reality experience and projected it on a local beach.
What the heck is an NFT? The Austin Chronicle interviewed me to chat about how NFTs can augment artist income and give another venue for creative outlet.
For the past 10 years or so I go to my nearest middle school and volunteer for Career Day. Even though my children have long left middle school (and even high school), I like to present interesting technology that I've got skills in to a bunch of 12-14 year olds.
Today was a day for the books. I got an opportunity to chat with Mike Monteiro about the design biz, getting older and our role as a leader to the next generation.
The future of entertainment and business will be more virtual. We are definitely experiencing it right now, but we'll have better hardware delivered to us. In the meantime, here is a booth I created to promote initiatives at my employer.
I headed to the Oculus 8 conference in San Jose, California. Was lucky enough to sit in the very first row and had a great seat to all of the announcements and technology reveals.
Today I got to take a tour of the Tesla factory in Fremont, California. It’s in the Bay Area and is HUGE. As an owner, I get the opportunity to tour their facilities. However, you can’t bring your camera into the factory floor.
Here is an easy solution to have a live animated cartoon as your Twitch personality. Using the motion capture and depth mapping on an iPhone X, you will be able to keep your identity hidden while allowing your audience to have a living breathing avatar.

We recently converted our in-office arcade video game machine away from Windows to run on a Raspberry Pi with RetroPie. While we were working on that project, we wondered if there was a way that video games could open back up to people with hand and arm disabilities.
This UT Sports Hackathon was very different than I expected and much more professional and structured in every good way. It was a competition and there was going to be a winner. Not a subjective show and tell, we were here to ball.
We are impressed with the almost immediate global adoption of Pokemon Go. It represents a seismic shift in functionality used in popular applications. Even though accelerometers, GPS, compasses, and cameras get built into every mobile device, the majority of applications use only one of those functions.
How do I do when it comes to detecting UI differences between two images? I rate very high with this test from Can't Unsee.
