I do stupid(?) things with RenderMan
I have led the USD team since the project's inception at Pixar in 2012. Prior to that I led the Pipeline team for several years, which gave me the passion to help design something like USD, to serve as the backbone of our 3D pipeline, simplifying it and extending its range.
