A product leader at the forefront of entertainment and technology. With a career spanning Apple, Lucasfilm, and NVIDIA, I have had the unique combination of marketing and product development, focused on bringing new ideas to life. At Apple, I directed developer relations and also managed Final Cut Pro, Logic, and Aperture. At Lucasfilm, I served as CTO, managing R&D, IT, and IS. With a more recent focus on AI, VR, and AR, I have given keynote addresses at nVidia GDC, Asia Broadcast, China Joy Expo, and multiple Apple WWDC presentations with the CEO. I am currently focused on new product development in the AEC markets for the AWS Thinkbox team.
