Speaking Engagements

A profound shift which is both nuanced and complex is underway amidst the morphing technology landscape and there is an opportunity to create a better future through immersive tools.  Virtual Realtiy (VR) can be used as a tool to develop new ways of seeing ourselves and the world—a tool to create emotional experiences and bring change to people or conditions that are in need.  VR and social advocacy are a “perfect storm” to help move people, corporations and ideas toward a new set of values, beliefs or attitudes and ultimately…action.
