Aaron J. Cunningham Metaverse, Web3 &
As a frontend developer, my expertise lies in the development of web3 and metaverse applications. With a unique blend of artistic and technical skills, I excel at crafting highly engaging online experiences.
I love building immersive web apps with Three.js and @react-three/fiber inside Next.js and React.
Throughout my career, I have worked for several prominent blockchain companies, including Coinsquare, Canada's largest cryptocurrency exchange, and IOST, a proof-of-stake blockchain platform based in Asia.
Currently, my focus is on web3 and browser-based metaverse development. In 2022 I helped RaveSpace, one of the world's leading metaverse development studios, launch their Musee Dezentral project, a museum dedicated to NFTs.
Now, I run my own metaverse studio XELEVEN, where we specialize in building immersive 3D metaverse sites for clients such as Nike, House Of Persona, and Bauhaus Earth. We recently built our own metaverse called the Spirit Realm. I believe that Spirit Realm best represents what I am capable of creating.
