Briefly a construction flagging contractor (You've seen the signs--Stop/Slow) Maret shifted to a law career focusing on people's end of life planning. Seven years in law can disillusion a futurist like Maret. She was ready to invent weird, wild stuff.
Maret plots Argyle’s direction. She often serves as the tech-to-human translator of this new era of computing. Maret shifted careers from law to XR (extended reality) almost immediately after trying on the Hololens in 2016. It was career change at first sight. She loves the freedom of extended realities and believes women must help create human-centered tech. In 2017 she launched Bevel Space with her husband, Logan Smith, and dear friend, Simon Manning.
From 2017-2018 Bevel Space served the needs of large commercial Architectural clients like ZGF and AEC pioneers like Katerra while providing workshops and educational programming for LinkedIn and architecture firms throughout the Northwest. At the end of 2018, Bevel's mobile AR technology "AR Plan" was featured in Autodesk University's AEC Keynote.
In 2019, Bevel Space shifted to augmented reality development and solving the challenges of alignment with the real world. Portland, Oregon's Andersen Construction project provided the first test use of Argyle - proprietary world alignment techniques.
Argyle is launching a public beta in 2020. Maret is excited to be at the forefront of transforming 2D computing into a technology that moves people from their screens out into the data enriched real world.
