Kitchen Conversations: AR and VR with Steven Freund

TechWorks Gaston

Kitchen Conversations is a casual series where we get together and talk with awesome people about their projects, ideas, and aspirations. Come join us in the TechWorks kitchen to have a drink (free) and contribute to the conversation! Our featured guest for June is Steven Freund! Steven Freund designs Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) experiences and runs the Charlotte VR and AR Meetup group. He believes that VR and AR are new mediums that will change the way people live, work, and play. He came to that realization through his life after graduation from the USAF Academy and as a pilot in the Air Force. Steven understood how powerful simulation could be before trying out the real thing. Moving on and getting an MBA from Georgetown, he reinvented himself as a process and business analyst creating system requirements across industries. He even had an accolade from the government with a “Hammer” award for reengineering excellence. As a professor, he taught business and critical thinking skills. Bringing these experiences together, Steven realized that VR and AR are tools that can release the creativity inside all of us. He is looking forward to the journey. Explore the amazing potential for augmented reality and virtual reality as new hardware and software deliver powerful experiences for the user.
