Eric founded the Houston VR Meetup with Damian O’Brian in early 2014. Jake has been a VR enthusiast since the summer of 2014, and pitched the idea of a industry-focused VR/AR/MR conference to the Houston VR Meetup in June 2015. He presently develops financial tools for NASA contractor Wyle. He would fly to Mars if he could make it back. He’s more likely to go there in an HMD. Damian founded the Houston VR Meetup with Eric Liga in early 2014. Kevin is a long time VR enthusiast who has been dreaming of the “holodeck” from Star Trek since he was a kid. He has grown up with a video game controller in his hands and is aspiring to do 3D modeling work for video games, or become the first professional VR video game player. Whichever comes first. He also likes dressing up in costume and going to conventions.
