I met Amy Peck during AWE EU in Lisbon, in the October 2022, at which time we recorded this interview. Amy is a very elegant woman. Without a trace of make-up, she manages to convey to you with her presence a competence of the highest level. You know you have in front of you a woman who can teach you many things. I have always admired Amy because she is one of the most interesting female entrepreneurs in the XR industry. Amy has a wonderful artistic background and I’ve always wondered how she used it to become the point of reference we all know today.
I love having this creative ability me too! But the world of technology is tough, and it’s not always welcoming to those who create content or can contribute their creativity to implement mechanical and mathematical processes. But let’s remember that mathematics is the basis of drawing and art as it is the basis of engineering… (this Leonardo Da Vinci taught us!). These two subjects seem so different, but they intertwine in an incredible way. And I hope sooner or later to find the way that merges them… through the culture!
