Get to know Dan Tinkham, our Head of Sales, Americas

How long have you worked for for WorldViz?
Four Years

What excites you the most about working for WorldViz?
I love that WorldViz is able to maintain a culture of innovation and continue to push boundaries in VR and that we ourselves have truly embraced VR as an everyday business tool with our ability to meet with people around the world in virtual meetings. It’s also a great pleasure to work with such a tight-knit group of intelligent people everyday.


What's your favorite thing about VR?
It’s ability to fully transport a person to a new environment in such a convincing way that they leave the experience with a real memory of the event. I think the impact this will have on learning, education and communication more broadly is going to be truly transformative for how we experience the world and interact with each other.

If you could meet one person in Vizible, dead or alive, who would it be?
Ben Franklin - my father is an American History teacher and he has convinced me this would be the best choice. Franklin’s wit and wisdom as well as his own fascination with technology would lead to a very interesting meeting. Plus I think he would really get a kick out of it.

Do you have any hidden talents, if so what are they?
I am embarrassingly good at Hacky sack after dedicating nearly every lunch break I had in high school to the sport.

What's your hometown?
San Bruno, CA - I grew up right next to SFO

What's the last book you read?
The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe

Pepsi or Coke?
Coca-Cola Classic

Do pineapples belong on pizza?
Yes, absolutely.

If you had one superpower, what would it be?
I have always felt that the ability to stop time would be the coolest possible super power. Who wouldn’t want all the time in the world to read, learn a new instrument, or finally finish writing
