Hello! ☕️ I work as a [senior applied research engineer](https://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&user=uXZQneAAAAAJ) focusing on augmented reality and virtual reality in the [GT Applied Research team](https://www.jpmorgan.com/technology/applied-research) of JPMorgan Chase, working under the guidance of Blair MacIntyre and Marco Pistoia. My role involves a blend of coding, design, academic research, and collaborative paper writing with my team. *This site embodies the concept of a ‘digital garden.’ It’s a space where notes are not just taken but also shared publicly, allowing for their growth and refinement over time.* AR, VR, XR code examples, notes, videos, etc are here: [[Augmented Reality]] I spend a lot of time volunteering with & being a board member of [The Wisdom Seat](https://thewisdomseat.org): a group of Buddhist teachers and practitioners who host spiritual teachers, sponsor meditation retreats and offer support to people on the Buddhist path.

Recording was my first love. At age 13 I got a guitar and a 4 track recorder. I have been making recordings as long as I’ve been around music. From high school through ager 35, my first career was all about sound: I worked as a record producer, recording engineer, mixing engineer, theater sound designer, and sometimes a musician. Now that I've switched to working in XR, I still play with recording, make music as an amateur, and create podcasts. I will keep playing with recording until I’m dead 💀💀💀 My [partner](http://carolsohan.com) is an artist & UX designer. We are the parents of one kid.
