About Me

Hello, my name is Harrison Linowes. I am a student at the University of Maryland, College Park studying computer science with a specialization in data science.

I am the Co-Founder of Glenhills VR Studios, a marketing company which utilizes virtual reality as a means to help companies and organizations connect to their clients and donors. I am very passionate about virtual and augmented reality and how it can be applied to assist society. I am also an active member in the local DCVR Meetup group and the President of the UMD Virtual Reality Club.

One of my passions is learning about new perspectives on entrepreneurship. I love emerging technologies and I am always trying to find new ways in which they can be used to aid societal problems. I am currently interested in topics such as machine learning, data science, computer vision, and mixed reality. I believe that society is at a pivotal point in history where these technologies impact and will continue to dramatically impact the way we live.
