About Brett Leavy: 

Brett Leavy, director of Bilbie Virtual Labs, uses augmented and virtual realities to authentically represent First Nations cultural heritage landscapes. Brett descends from the Kooma people, whose traditional country is bordered by St George to the east, Cunnamulla to the west, the town of Mitchell to the north and the Queensland/New South Wales boundary to the south. 

Brett creates software for visualizing heritage landscapes for PC, AR and VR and contributes to conservation and environmental management using First Nations research methodologies. He works to apply environmental policy, engage with community and enable First Nations people to better manage their continuous connection to culture.
