Entrepreneur, Author, Educator. Software Engineer and Computational Designer Hybrid.

Hi! I’m Erin. I’m known often as the Co-Founder and Chief Creative Technology Officer (CCTO) of Salamat, the author of the internationally acclaimed O’Reilly Media book, Creating Augmented and Virtual Realities: Theory and Practice for Next-Generation of Spatial Computing (published in 2019), and for my community service (non-profit volunteer work) as founder of FASTER - Filipinx Americans in STEAM - Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics. I work on AI, metaverse, and web3. I’m a a proud Silicon Valley native born and raised. I’m an alumnus of UC Berkeley and electoral campaigns as paid staff for Obama for America (2012), and Ro Khanna for Congress (2013-2014)). In my spare time, I enjoy baking sweets, playing poker and pool, am an anime otaku.

Creating the Metaverse

An update to my work since the publication of Creating Augmented and Virtual Realities: Theory and Practice for Next-Generation Spatial Computing (published in 2019). Much has changed in the last 3-4 years since the release of this book and I will discuss what topics were originally left out of the book that I have focused on the last few years, including WebXR, cryptocurrency/blockchain/web3, and ethics.

Women in Tech

As I have spoken at several conferences about the subject of Justice, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at various events over the years, I thought I would share a resource link list of groups and other resources since I frequently am asked to for folks to pick my brain on how to get started in the tech industry as a woman in tech, particularly for those who want to become software engineers. I personally do not have the bandwidth to meet with everyone (that is impossible and I have had an overflowing amount of inbound messages that I am unable to respond to everything), so I hope this will be a good substitute to redirect folks to that may help get them started and guide them a little bit in the initial part of their professional journeys.
