Amy Peck is a business development and strategy executive with years of experience working with startups. Amy holds several Advisory Board roles, chairs the VRARA Enterprise Committee, is a member of IEEE ICICLE XR SIG and is a venture partner at the Capital Region XR Accelerator. She is an active mentor to women in tech and participates in many technology and leadership forums for both startups and established industry players.
She began her career in international licensing with PolyGram UK and Rough Trade Records. She spent years producing fashion stills, music videos and commercials with some of the largest brands, advertising agencies, photographers and directors. She was the post-production & special effects producer for most of her commercials and has always remained on the edge of new and emerging technology.
Amy's passion for virtual reality began at Leap Motion where she ran the enterprise division working with education, healthcare, retail, hospitality, entertainment and government clients. She worked closely with the Leap Motion developer community to pair talented development teams with these commercial clients. It became clear that there was a need to help foster Augmented & Virtual Reality development in the commercial arena.
Amy works tirelessly with her developers and enterprise clients and is an avid AR/VR evangelist. She speaks at schools and universities on the topic and mentors students and young developers helping to realize their ambitions. Her own personal mission is to see AR/VR fundamentally improve every aspect of our lives.
From games, entertainment, social and immersive experiences to medical, industrial and educational solutions, Amy believes in this technology and the positive impact it will make. This is the impetus for her regular hashtag on Twitter: #ARVRForAll with the goal of making this technology accessible and transformative for everyone.
Amy grew up in Palm Beach and New York City and has lived in South Beach, London, Tokyo, Los Angeles and Fairfield County. She moved to San Francisco 3 years ago and now calls it home.
She is a well-known photographer in her own right (amypeckarchive.com) and has traveled extensively feeding her endless curiosity for global cultures.
Amy's favorite accomplishments include teaching herself Photoshop and how to ride a unicycle, though her greatest accomplishment is raising her two boys, Spencer and Sebastian.
