Presenter Bio:

Born and raised in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago, Lorne graduated from Walter Payton College Prep and continued on to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Upon his return, he began working for 5411 Empanadas and was instrumental in the operational structure of the factory that produces the empanadas served in all seven locations by establishing the data retention and analysis procedures. His need for something new caused him to leave 5411 and join Madison and Rayne. Their website uses programs he created to forecast order guides, prep lists, and menu financials using data-driven predictions. After working for these startups, Lorne decided it was time to form one of his own, so he partnered with like-minded friends, and Reality Bytes was born. They knew virtual reality would redefine the way we live our lives, especially in entertainment, education, and business, and they wanted to ensure that the technology gets utilized properly. Since its formation, Lorne has spent all of his time studying the industry, and helping others determine how to efficiently and effectively implement the technology. Recently, he gave a demo and presentation to Deloitte Consulting staff at their annual Technology, Media, and Telecom (TMT) event, MegaBytes. He loves talking about VR/AR and is always looking for opportunities to discuss it with anyone interested in the field.
