Lee Schuneman heads up one of the more exciting and intriguing design and creative studios in the UK. With its mix of artists, designers and creative technologists, Lift London helps develop future thinking about how people will interact with Microsoft’s services and devices. This includes work on Microsoft Cloud, Surface, Mobile, Web and, perhaps most excitingly, HoloLens, Microsoft’s augmented reality platform.

Schuneman’s background is in games design – titles he has worked on have sold over 50 million copies while he has also won two BAFTAs. His connection with BAFTA is ongoing as he serves as a committee member with a particular focus on new talent initiatives. He is also a board member of London’s leading festival of creativity, Soho Create.
