Co-founding partner at Neomancer, a technology strategy and management group, Hai has more than three decades of experience in technology, and more than a decade in gaming. His breadth and depth of experience fuels solutions that thrive at the intersection between industries.
Hai’s experience with gaming began when Neomancer developed an iGaming application, connecting him to Continent 8 Technologies and eventually resulting in his coming aboard Continent 8 to serve as CIO. During his tenure, Hai and his team explored and developed physical and network technologies, always with the challenges of cyber-security in mind.
Hai is no stranger to emerging technologies, working with both augmented reality and virtual reality since the mid-90s, he is responsible for the first AR demo on the floor of the NYSE and the first AR tool deployed on the floor of NYMEX. Over the last year, he has been a technology ambassador for Open-Source VR, showcasing the opportunities that VR can bring to the motion picture and iGaming industries.

He routinely speaks publicly about about esports to the gaming industry and collaborates with groups such as Nevada Esports Alliance, UNLV’s International Gaming Institute, and Esports Integrity Coalition. His ultimate goal is to foster cooperation to form the right interface between gaming and gaming.
