Bio

Melissa Merencillo is an aspiring Creative Technologist and X Reality (AR/VR/MR) enthusiast located in the San Francisco Bay Area focusing on interaction design, social presence, behavioral communication and experiential learning in digital reality systems and technology. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication from California State University East Bay (2012) and a Master of Arts in Multimedia with a concentration in Interaction Design also from California State University East Bay (2017). Her work as Project/Product Manager, Unity Developer and Video Producer on the collaborative thesis, Project: This Way!, explored the concepts of copresence and cross-reality communication in VR by developing a locally, social two-player interactive VR experience where only one VR headset is needed. Project: This Way! was shown and demoed in its early stages of development at the VR Mixer of the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, CA and in its final iteration at Maker Faire Bay Area in San Mateo, CA and the symposium, If You Weren't: Playing with Realities in ARG, AR, and VR held at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. She is an avid member of various AR/VR MeetUps and attends events and conferences on AR/VR technology throughout the Bay Area. She is currently the Instructional Support Technician II and Video Lab Coordinator of the Department of Communication at California State University East Bay for courses in digital video and media production.

Melissa is always interested in discussing new media, tech+art, and exploring unconventional ideas and interactions in VR and AR. When Melissa is not exploring the realms of the virtual world, she seeks out new adventures in the real world through travel.
