Evan has been at the forefront of the immersive technology industry for the last 5 years, operating as a business development and strategy leader at numerous layers of the XR tech stack; from headsets and apps to middleware and game engines, to cloud and edge compute/5G. During his initial foray into XR, Evan lead sales and partnerships at AR headset pioneer Meta, where he built one of the industry's first ecosystems of AR developers and enterprise end-users. Evan then went on to lead business development in North America for Improbable, the creators of SpatialOS - a platform for developing massive virtual worlds and persistent simulations (think back-end tech for the eventual Metaverse). Today, Evan is responsible for Spatial Computing at AWS, spearheading go-to-market strategy and business development for all things AR, VR, and real-time 3D.
