He is excited that at BehaVR he can use his computational and research skills to help develop and improve digital technologies to enhance human mental health and wellness.
Why is a better future for mental healthcare important to you?
Because mental health is such a critical component of overall health that is still under-appreciated and under-treated because of long-held stigmas around talking about mental health problems.
What do you find most exciting about our industry?
The potential for VR and digital health in general to advance the prospects of access to mental-health solutions for consumers and value-based pricing for payers to improve overall health and wellness.
What’d you think you’d be when you grew up?
A professional volleyball player. Unfortunately, I never reached the 6′ 4″ height my family doctor said I was destined to achieve.
Where in the world would you most like to go?
Too many places: but Spain, Big Sky Country, and anywhere with good views of either of the auroras would be top of my list.
