David Montero - Sr. Experience Design Lead, Augmented Reality, Adobe; Former Product Design Lead, Blippar; Postgraduate Research, Tokyo University; MA, Interaction Design, University of Sydney
David Montero has been defining design best practices for mobile AR since its infancy, previously at Layar and Blippar, two of the AR 1.0 trailblazers. Currently, a Sr. Experience Design Lead at Adobe's Project Aero, he’s focused on bringing 3D and immersive media to a brand new generation of creation tools. His passion for mixing realities goes a decade and a half back, as a researcher on Multimodality and Virtual Worlds at Tokyo University, and it has been a fundamental component of his interactive artwork, like “Deja Vu” (TEDx Valladolid, 2012) and “#FollowUS” (MADATAC 04, Madrid 2012).
