the story

My team and I built a platform for retailers to make immersive experiences to better showcase their products – both online or in-store. Imagine it is your first time camping and you are shopping for a tent. Web pages do not really let you get an idea of the size and physicality of the tent. Step into VR and you will be dropped into a campsite, showcasing all of the outdoor equipment the store sells. Swap items out, inspect products better, maybe even configure what you ideal campsite would look like. Bookmark the things you want, compare items, and check out – all from the comfort of your couch.

the role

• Worked as the product manager to lead meetings to validate our assumption that mixed reality can solve the pain points of online shopping and brick and mortar.

• Took ownership with Chkout by writing user stories based on feedback we gathered from interviewing clients and then implementing those stories in our product retrospectives.

• Using my multi-tasking skills to help facilitate fast-paced sprints to include user-centered design, rapid prototyping, and VR design while suggesting project improvements.

• Iterated on prototypes built in Unity to lead product retrospectives to find a more innovative solution.
