Director Statement

I don't think I have the skills to solve the world's problems on my own. I hope that introducing learners to Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality capabilities sparks a passion and sense of creativity in them and that they start to think of how they can use these emerging technologies to solve issues that they find important. When I was growing up VR and AR were just concepts for television shows, now there're YouTube tutorials that can equip 10 year olds to create apps and develop games. Overall, I think I'd just like to leave a lasting impression with my work rather than as myself as a person. The artist in me knows there comes a satisfaction with having created something. A lot of people don't ever get to feel that because they're put off by coding, or they don't think they're smart enough, or they don't have a 4 year computer sciences degree. So I want to be an example to others. To say that it's definitely not easy, but if you put in the work you're only limited by your imagination, and that your ideas shouldn't be discounted just because of your background.
