      Simon Manning

      Digital maker looking for high-impact design challenge.

      Simon Manning is a maker. He is currently a VR specialist and model shop director for bevel.space.

      Before he ever donned a VR headset, Simon was building physical things: models, 3D printers, even a mixed reality capture setup. Grounded in the knowledge of physical things, Simon's virtual experiences display clarity and confidence.

      His innovative work on the F5 Tower in Seattle was featured in Wired Magazine and he is regularly invited to speak on the topic of enterprise VR applications. When he's not immersed in architecture Simon is an active member of the growing VR community, sharing his knowledge and trying the latest gizmos to keep up with the rapid pace of technology.
