Person Details


Jules Urbach is the Founder and CEO of OTOY and Lightstage. Jules was born and raised in the french countryside west of Paris (near Versailles) until age 9 when he moved to LA.

In LA he attended Harvard-Westlake high school before being accepted to Harvard University. However, he decided to defer his acceptance to Harvard (indefinitely as it turned out) to go make video games. He made his first game, Hell Cab - Time Warner Interactive, at age 18.

Six years after he created Hell Cab, he founded Groove Alliance. Groove ended up creating the first game ever available on (Real Pool). A decade later, Jules is busy working on his latest two companies, OTOY and Lightstage, which he hopes will revolutionize 3D rendering.
