Megan Lubaszka is the Southwest Regional Creative Media Leader at Gensler, the largest architectural firm in the world.

She writes a weekly newsletter called Reality Check that identifies trends in VR/AR and co-hosts weekly VR Jams in which architects from any Gensler office can come together as avatars in the same 3d model for a “virtual site walk” with the building’s design team. Megan has guided over 2,000 people through their first Virtual Reality experience. She holds a B.Arch and M.Arch from the Tulane School of Architecture in New Orleans and worked as an architectural designer of retail stores, shopping centers, banks, international theme parks & mixed use projects.
