Elburz Sorkhabi is the type of person who'd rather answer the questions "How are we going to express this idea?" or "How are we going to build this thing?" rather than "What do you do?”. A polymath at the core, he brings a deep knowledge from a number of professional fields to projects of all shapes and sizes. To give a taste of the last few years, Elburz has performed musically on some of the world's largest stages, developed custom software for the world's biggest brands, led teams across the globe deploying large-scale media-art installations, authored the first book on a leading interactive development platform, taught dozens of workshops around the world, and has been creating Open Source projects in the Space Industry.
