About Thorne

A weathered tech professional, senior engineer, animator, and new media artist who has developed for fortune 500 companies and startups. I received a B.F.A. with an emphasis in New Media from the School of the Art Institute in 2008. As an artist I have exhibited globally, including Berlin, Art Basel Miami, the Contemporary Art Center, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

I run a new media gallery that specializes in experimental audio visual performances and installations, and independent game exhibitions. I have developed experimental online multiplayer games, and am currently developing an independent multiplayer virtual reality game in Unity. I also use c# and unity to create reactive animations that respond to musical instruments through MIDI. I have also toured as an animator and have animated hundreds of hours of footage in Flash, Photoshop and After Effects.

I'm a certified adobe expert through Expert Rating, I've been using photoshop professionally for 10 years. I'm a senior javascript developers

Virtual Reality will be the most influential technology since the internet. I'd like to grow a community of new entrepreneurs by teaching students the fundamentals of programming through game development, allowing students to become immersed with the spaces that they have created.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I've been developing in c# in Unity3d since the Oculus Rift developer kit came out two years ago, and have released three location-specific virtual reality games, including a Harry Potter themed 'Wand training' for the recent book release.
