Meet Alan Lorence
COW Leaders : Alan LorenceCreative COW Forum Host
Alan Lorence is president and founder of wondertouch™, a St. Louis-based software company. Lorence is responsible for the management and day-to-day operations at wondertouch including business development, technical sales and support. He also serves as chief software engineer on the company's flagship product, particleIllusion™
Just prior to the start-up of wondertouch, Lorence spent several years in partnership with software maker Impulse, pursuing his interest in computer graphics. Among his duties he served as the original developer of the Illusion software line. Illusion's real-time feedback and easy-to-use interface made it a powerful tool in the hands of visual effects artists. With the intention of enhancing recognition for Illusion's production-proven 2D, sprite-based particle effects technology, Lorence acquired the rights to the software and founded wondertouch in July 2002. He renamed the software line particleIllusion and the company today continues ongoing development, sales and support for the product under this name.
Lorence has extensive experience in embedded controller design and custom software development, primarily in the areas of sensor data collection, analysis, and presentation. Earlier in his career Lorence served in various software design and programming capacities in the toy and game industries.
Lorence earned a B.A. in Physics from Illinois Wesleyan University and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.
You can find Alan Lorence hosting in Creative COW's and Boris FX Particle Illusion Forum.
