Strata founder and CTO, Gary knows technology – from the latest in GPU coding to high-level C++, and is on the cutting edge of the latest in experiential 3D design technologies and hardware. When Gary co-founded Strata in 1988, the Mac he was developing on was just a black & white machine. Gary had the foresight and vision to see that full color, high-power computing was coming to the desktop in a friendly interface for the designers that Strata has always sought to serve. Keep an eye out for new options that Gary and his team continue to explore.
