Product Lead, Social Suite & Avatar Chat, Magic Leap - 2017 - Present
In spring 2017, I was appointed by the CEO to envision and execute the launch of Avatar Chat, an embodied, spatial communication and sharing platform for Magic Leap One. Over the next year and a half I lead a 20+ person design and engineering team to ship a suite of social products within the first 6 months of Magic Leap's launch: Connections and Contacts, Avatar Chat, Avatar Personalization, Custom Avatar Developer Tools, and multiuser Casting features for the Lumin OS. I lead the team toward these launch milestones through daily standup, detailed schedule and resource management, and multiple reinventions of team process.
I currently lead product strategy for communication and collaboration on Magic Leap, defining the vision and roadmap for an unprecedented suite of products to enable shared experiences in spatial computing, across distance and across platforms. I engage deeply with developers to improve and expand the current product offering for multiuser features on Magic Leap through monthly SW updates, while working with a global team of designers, engineers, and researchers to develop a next-gen suite of multi-user and Avatar products across multiple runtime engines and devices.
