Gaspar Ferreiro - Founder
Gaspar Ferreiro is not your typical game developer. For starters, he is an accomplished professional in the Banking Industry, helping to create the logic behind an online investment platform that currently manages more than 1.6 Billion dollars of investment funds. He is also heavily involved in Non-profit Work, education, and social entrepreneurship. Yet, his real calling is in the exploration of new and exciting technologies, which have naturally driven him to software development with a focus on Virtual and Augmented Realities. He developed his first VR app at Oculus share “VR Boat Adventures”. Later, he developed a demo for GearVR called “Islands in the Sky” (for the Oculus Mobile Jam), which later evolved into “Islands in the Sky V2” (for Archiact Global Jam), for which he won 1st place, and got to travel to China to interact with other VR companies and developers.
