Hailed by The New Yorker as, "a mellow, collegiate blond in jeans and flip-flops," Cody Karutz has studied and designed immersive experiences for over a decade. At Stanford University's Virtual Human Interaction Lab, he spent six years researching the behavioral science behind virtual reality during its transformation from academic to consumer technology. His graduate thesis, “The Crystal Reef,” was the first immersive experience to ever both world premiere and collect research data at a major film festival (Tribeca).

Cody was named a Pacific Standard Magazine 2017 Top 30 Thinker Under 30 for his direct-media design work. He holds an M.S. in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University and currently is the Founder of Blue Trot, a creative consultancy studying and designing immersive intelligence.
