Google Street View Product Manager
At Google, I'm responsible for the UGC side of Street View. Since joining the company, I've led our launches of the Open Spherical Camera API, the Street View app, and a handful of spherical camera partnerships that are helping position Street View as a true 360 publishing platform in the emerging VR era.
Sphere Founder & Former CEO
Along with 4 engineers, I developed Sphere — a platform for 360º content. Our tech was backed by 20 pending patents and our company managed to form valuable partnerships with companies like Samsung, Sony and HomeAway. We also saw 3 million downloads through the iTunes App Store and reached 37,000 daily active users.
With an education focused on UX design, my first venture was Spark, a 35–person, interactive ad agency. During this time (2003–2011), I also developed a strong interest in panoramic photography. In 2010, I became the lead moderator for PanoGuide (at the time, the largest pro panographer forum).
Maryland Institute College of Art
MICA offers one of the world's top design programs. After studying under the legendary Ellen Lupton, I graduated from MICA Magna Cum Laude with honors in 2003.
