Ricardo Parker is the Founder and CEO of Chronos Global Academy. Founded in February 2015, the Academy is designed to provide anyone with the skills necessary to create immersive content. As a new paradigm, XR has the potential to be an equalizer for jobs and opportunities for all. Ricardo has worked to create an Academy that will democratize XR and make it accessible to all people, and to promote inclusion and gender balance in the workplace. Chronos currently has an XR lab in downtown Seattle and downtown San Francisco, and Ricardo and his team are working to expand the Academy to other cities.
