Dylan, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Started out as a food truck owner until I backed a project on kickstarter call oculus. Oculus head set came in the mail (mind was blown). Started a community in OC for VR developers and enthusiast called OCVR. OC Virtual Reality on Meetup.com. Did tons of events, social, educational, vr conferences. Formed a development studio called monster vr. Worked with major brands making virtual and augmented experiences. We have worked with University of Irvine. San Diego Zoo, Disney, Dole, Starwars, William Grant and Sons and many more.

Lots of obstacles. Understanding the technology. Understanding how to add value. Losing teammates. Losing potential customers. All the time learning and growing. I am truly grateful for the journey.
