Using a combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, systems can now present the user with intelligent, calculated decisions and actionable insights using predictive analytics. The solutions and algorithms are here and we can do this now. This is no longer science fiction. 80% of all data solutions will have some form of machine learning and predictive analytics features to take actions on real time data while the data is fresh. It can often take days, weeks, or months for some calculations that can now be accomplished with AI.

Magic Leap is the future. The advances in photonics is the new visualization age of the future because it allows us to augment our reality with image recognition holographic projections in hardware the size just larger than reading glasses. To date I have worked on a multitude of Microsoft HoloLens applications from healthcare to oil & gas industries. Also, most recently brokered a relationship putting my company on the board of advisors for META.

Neural Cognitive UX, natural gestures, and voice UX leveraging the advances in Natural Language Processing will be the next wave of UX advancements. When we can commands our user tasks with our voice with simplicity, our productivity increases and frees our hands for other types of input, if at all.

Often times pinch gestures can cause arm fatigue in as little as 15 minutes. The (2) best ways to alleviate arm fatigue in Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), as well as Mixed Reality (MR) is to keep the arms moving with different motions or to not use gestures at all, rather, voice commands. That is where NRP (Natural Language Processing) can shine.

Recent drone projects I’ve worked on involve taking 100s of photos and stitching them together to create a 3D model (photogrammetry) and LiDAR, the creation of points clouds using laser measurements and geospatial recognition.

Robotics from drones to assembly are revolutionizing multiple industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, industrial, and oil & gas industries.

I’ve led the architecture and design for a customized node, angular, responsive based eCommerce platform used by over 3000 banks, including 3 of the top 5 in the United States, including product tile anatomy, conversion, and dynamic content fidelity.

I’ve led the design & architecture of node, angular, responsive travel platform used by over 3000 banks, mapping the experience of renting or booking flights, cars, hotels, activities, and ticketed events.

Background

I grew up in a suburb of Atlanta, GA called Decatur. Home of some of the best restaurants in Atlanta. My wife and I like to frequent Parkers on Ponce, Brick Store Pub, and met at Leon’s.

I was formally educated in Human Computer Interaction, Visual Communications, and Economics at Mercer University. Growing up, I had a passion for gaming, computers, chemistry, astrology, great book literature, hot rods, and martial arts. I’ve also studied wing chun kung fu, jeet kune do gung fu, muay thai, kali, and jujitsu. I practice on a wooden dummy (muk yan jong) nearly every day. Even today I still own my 1st car, a 1965 GT Mustang with a 351W and take  it to car shows in the summer months.

I regularly study emerging technologies, JS libraries, APIs, and continue my education in User Experience & Design. My latest passion involves the IoT (Internet of Things) industry and interconnected devices / interfaces. Wearable tech, drones, and interfaces just being some of the subjects of study.

Innovation Love Thirst

I have a true passion for user experience, design, and technology. I love innovation. I love things that save you time and give you augmented experiences that make decisions more intelligent and more productive. This mentality not only applies to my approach with design, but with many facets in life.

Perhaps most of all, I love people and simplicity. I love innovation. I love things that just work that seemed automatic from the start. I love user interactions that, after experiencing it, you cannot imagine the experience being any other way.
