Person large

Software Engineer at Collabora, working on Virtual Reality.

When studying Software Engineering at University Stuttgart I became interested in VR when Oculus Released the Rift DK2, a development kit for their affordable VR headset for consumers with decent resolution. Since then I have been around various communities around VR on Linux and open source VR, which also resulted in mainting many XR related packages in the AUR.

Last year I started working at Collabora, which allowed me to contribute to Khronos' OpenXR specification, Collabora's OpenXR runtime "Monado" and other VR projects.
