A little bit about the city: LA

Los Angeles is spread out a lot compared to other cities, to the point where walking anywhere is pretty uncommon! LA County is home to 88 cities including Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and West Hollywood – and although they operate independently of LA, they are still a part of the metropolis. Los Angeles’ freeway system is daunting and infamously hectic. Despite this, most LA dwellers still use their own cars to get around, although other popular options include ordering a Lyft or an Uber (ride-share apps). One thing LA is rightly famous for is their climate. With sun near to 365 days a year and an average of 75 degrees Fahrenheit every year for the past 30 years, the weather here is near on idyllic!

VR and AR Consultant Ryan Templeman

Ryan looks after programmers particularly focusing on the VR/AR space. We think he’s working here mostly get his hands on new Lord of the Rings VR experiences as soon as they come out although, with his level of knowledge, maybe he should be helping make them instead!    He is one of the few people on the team that is a born and bred Brightonian. In fact he has never moved far - to the point where last time he moved, it was only 2 doors down from his old place!
