Freelance Interactive Developer & AR/XR Specialist
Hello I'm Marco, an interactive developer and AR/XR specialist based in London. I write software and design real-time generative content for large-scale interactive experiences and live or broadcast events. I'm a self-guided programmer, who enjoy finding elegant solutions for technologically complex problems, by combining design thinking with a deep knowledge of different frameworks, programming languages and production pipelines. With years of experience in TouchDesigner / Unity / iOS, I help agencies and creative or tech teams to validate ideas, develop fast, scalable and easy to maintain software for interactive experiences, architectural installations and retailtainment. I also specialise in AR/XR workflows for broadcast and live events. From concept to show day, I work closely with creative directors to design real-time interactive graphics, IMAGs and virtual production sets to augment what's real. Past work has included end-clients like H&M, LEGO, Nike, Janet Jackson, Gorillaz, Martin Garrix, BMW, Maserati and HP.
