horizon worlds

When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology.

Horizon Worlds is an immersive vitural universe with thousands of games and experiences designed to bring people closer together. In leading content design for the Creator Success pillar of Horizon, I enable worldbuilders to create experiences, communities, and environments in the metaverse. Within the pillar, there are three teams for which I lead content design.

  • Creator Journey — how people develop skills to create worlds
  • Community Building — how people meaningfully bring others to their worlds
  • Creator Economy — how people create virtual goods and services in their worlds

Some features my teams have shipped to-date are below.

Learn in VR, an interactive tutorial feature that teaches worldbuilding skills

In-world purchases, the foundation for creating items, and the Horizon inventory system

Item gifting, to build community engagement and interaction
