The operative assimilated Google full-time in 2014, though he’s a large partial of a company’s start story.

Levoy knew Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin when he was a highbrow and they were students during Stanford University in a 90s (he also says he “lent a few hoop drives to PhD students David Filo and Jerry Yang” around a same time, that led to a origination of Yahoo).

Levoy was one of a total behind Google Maps’ Street View too, and he’s also worked on Google Glass and been concerned in a firm’s VR efforts.

What’s more, he’s even believed to be partial of a story of hoe Google got a name.
