Introduction Passionate about real-time path tracing and photoreal rendering with GPU ray tracing. I'm currently the project lead at MI New Zealand. Before that: project lead at the University of Auckland NZ, technical project manager on OctaneRender (from beta version to v 2.0), instigator and driving force behind the Brigade real-time path tracing project leading the creative and technical R&D vision (Feb 2012 - Oct 2013), photoreal 3D graphics developer and consultant, medical imaging/neuroradiology researcher. My tutorial series on GPU accelerated path tracing (with source code) can be found on GitHub. For questions, email me at
