About JJ

I left my job as a producer/director at Rooster Teeth to pursue VR full time 2 years ago. In Jan of 2016 I attended a game jam to try and make a VR game in 48 hours. Sent game to HTC who then sent me a VIVE months before consumer release. We made a baseball game to show during SXSW and ended up selling our demo to Dave & Busters. Fast forward a year and we've done client work for DELL and P&G and in December installed a VR basketball experience in Madison Square Garden for Anheuser-Busch. We are currently prepping an even bigger multiplayer version for the ALL-STAR game in New Orleans.
