Sean T. McBeth
I'm a DoD cleared, cross-disciplinary Project Manager/Technical Lead, with 20 years of professional experience. I've successfully bootstrapped and deployed multiple VR and AR projects in WebXR and Unity3D over the last 8 years.
I currently manage a team of software developers at Systems Planning and Analysis, working for the Department of Defense on building tools to manage research funding, adjudicate war games, and perform novel analysis on trends in critical supply line security and technological innovation.
I'm interested in projects in VR, AR, audio, and/or AI, especially in the productivity, training, and education markets. I live in Alexandria, Virginia, with my wife and 2 kids. I'm open to 100% remote projects anywhere, or hybrid work in the Arlington/Alexandria area.
In my free time, I dabble in AI (genetic algorithms, interfacing with OpenAI's large language models), embedded software development (Arduino and Adafruit Feather microcontrollers), photography, woodworking, and wine making. Before VR, I worked primarily on Web and desktop applications for GIS, database management and reporting (Online Transaction Processing), and industrial simulation.
Here are some of my most recent projects.
