Overview

For over 5+ years, I've been fortunate to work closely with Magic Leap and immerse myself in this new computing revolution that is changing how we interact with every aspect of our digital life, from entertainment and gaming to manufacturing and healthcare. 

I've worked collaboratively with multiple teams, including product, design, brand, engineering, and multiple business units, leading projects to explore the potential of extended reality in empowering individuals and organizations and creating human-centric future experiences that enhance our capacity to connect, imagine, and create.

What I did

  • Explored and designed over 100+ use cases and future vision scenarios that demonstrate the transformative potential of extended reality across various sectors, from consumer to enterprise
  • Created product visions of new applications for the Magic Leap platform 
  • Designed UX/UI concepts for new immersive experiences 
  • Built the initial internal Magic Leap Product Guidelines that effectively communicate the fundamental capabilities and features of the product and platform
  • Strategized and envisioned key scenarios for spatial experiences, considering the near-term, mid-term, and long-term future
  • Collaborated closely with the internal brand team to envision strategic experiences that effectively communicate Magic Leap's value proposition in marketing materials

Designing future experiences and human-centered interfaces for spatial computing

The possibilities are endless for how spatial computing can transform the way we interact with digital experiences, allowing the virtual and physical worlds to become seamlessly integrated.

My role has been to lead our design team to explore future vision scenarios across different industries, including manufacturing, entertainment, mobility, healthcare, gaming, shopping, construction, and more. By prototyping ideas and creating new concept experiences, our team explored over 100+ human-centered use cases and strategic scenarios showcasing how spatial computing can amplify human potential. 

These explorations played a critical role in guiding various stakeholders within Magic Leap, helping them prioritize the development of features and capabilities for Magic Leap device and demonstrate to investors and clients the potential and evolution of this groundbreaking technology in the near, mid, and long-term future.

I also helped craft spatial user experiences and interfaces for several product vision concepts, working with internal teams at Magic Leap teams as well as partnering with third-party companies to showcase potential experiences and applications for the Magic Leap platform.
