## Bill Moriarty
Hello. I work as a [senior applied researcher](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, under Blair MacIntyre and Marco Pistoia. This encompasses coding, design, academic research, and paper writing with my team.
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.

I studied computer science and software design at Temple University.
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.
