In May of 2019, I visited Dr. Sandra Rodriguez at MIT Open Doc Lab to give two lectures on touch, the landscape of haptic feedback technologies, and HaptX’s approach to simulating touch in virtual reality. I was invited as part of the 2019 Hacking XR Speaker Series, which also included speakers from Facebook/Oculus, Johns Hopkins, and filmmaking legend Douglas Trumbull.
Speaking in front of audiences, microphones, and video cameras is an area in which I’m actively trying to improve. Here are a few other recent speaking engagements.

Curated by Phi and New York's Future of StoryTelling (FoST), The New Storytellers conference is gathering creative leaders to explore how storytelling is evolving in the digital age. I joined this panel to discuss HaptX and immersion beyond your eyes and ears.
