“I’ve known Howard from the beginning boom of the VR and AR industries in NYC. I am grateful he has stepped on board of our multiplayer VR game with the Oculus Launch Pad program. Joining our team as the Technical Advisor, Howard brings his programming expertise to establish solid Logic in our game, along with the benefit of enthusiasm and curiosity. He is also open and willing to help us solve problems when we run into a challenge. He is a team player and a total asset.”

“Howard has been a key member and contributor to many of Mana Health’s teams and initiatives and an essential asset to the company. In addition to managing our overall API and Quality effort, he innovated our VR Data Visualization offering, defining and developing a prototype that was featured at our trade show booths over the past 2 years.  

Howard and I first met when he was a Google Glass explorer, and he continues to thrive on examining new and innovative technologies, offering guidance and mentorship to colleagues, often rolling up his sleeves and getting the coding done as well as putting together the right team for the task at hand. He is attentive to best practices in design, development and quality and does not hesitate to step in when he thinks things can be improved.

In addition to our work together at Mana Health, I’ve also enjoyed many interesting discussion about then future of AR, VR, Machine Learning and Big Data, and ways in which those technologies can be put to work to improve business and analytics.  

Howard has been extremely helpful in fostering meaningful productive communication between senior executive staff and development teams at all levels. 

I highly recommend Howard as fantastic addition to any fast moving team and an overall great guy to work alongside in the trenches!”

“Howard is one of the most open minded and independent thinkers I’ve ever worked with – exceptional VR/AR architect, product visionary, product manager, and great friend. Very detail-oriented and thorough. Highly recommend him for any position that requires full cycle product envision, planning, and successful delivery”

“Howard is the engineer that you want on your team. He brings crucial experiences to the table yet he also dives into uncharted territory, delivering great value from new sources. On top of this, Howard is unflappable under pressure and a phenomenal joy to work with.

On a number of occasions, we had urgent deadlines to deliver prototypes on wearables like Google Glass, Vuzix, and other smart glass devices. Howard could keep cool, organized teams of developers and demo practical solutions in short order.

Howard is equally great on the organization of projects as well as getting his hands dirty with code. He uses agile methods from time-blocking requirements through to project management to retros.

I have recently been discussing with him VR concepts and ways in which the Augmate Platform would support VR devices. Howard continues to advise Augmate on new functionality and ways to take those features to market. I highly recommend Howard for your software and leadership areas.”
