epending on the day, a complete description of who I am could change - I think that's what makes me an interesting person. One day I packed up my life in DC and bought a one-way ticket to Los Angeles.
Was it worth it? Yes.
You can usually find me over on Twitter talking about whatever I'm working on or usually at home on the couch wondering what Loonette the Clown is up to these days.
I always thought extended reality (XR) was awesome, but I didn't see myself working in this field. That was until Summer 2019 while sitting in the Delta terminal at LGA waiting to board my flight back to LAX. I was scrolling through my Twitter feed (as per usual) when I came across a HoloLens 2 demo.
The presenter, an English speaker, was speaking to someone virtually. Her holographic image displayed on the screen while her real-time speech was translated into another language. I was impressed but more important I was intrigued.
Almost a year later and with the generous support of the XR community, I've found myself in a new home at Microsoft helping beginners learn about spatial computing and how to get started with Mixed Reality.
My very first book with Wiley is currently available for purchase from a variety of retailers (although my fave happens to be indie bookstores). I put together a list of confirmed retailers here on the Bite-Size Python page. If you happen to purchase from an indie bookstore, let me know so that I can add them to the list!
For all inquiries regarding library and bulk-purchases, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll have to defer to my publisher.
It's taken me 7 years to realize that I just really don't like personal blogging - who knew? However, that doesn't mean that I don't mind blogging for work. If you're looking for Mixed Reality content, head over to Dev.to to check my latest posts.
