Damien Henry


I grew up in the countryside in France where I taught myself to code. I studied signal analysis and worked for the industry but soon was attracted by entrepreneurship.

In 2007, I became the first CTO of Voxler. Our singing voice analysis technology powered 10+ video games.

In 2011, I co-founded AudioGaming where I created an optimized a memory-efficient audio synthesis framework in C. The next year we pivoted and created Novelab, which became an award-winning studio for creating experiences in VR.

In 2013, I created a VR headset in Cardboard that became the Google Cardboard, and joined Google in 2014. I oversaw innovation for six years at Google Arts & Culture Lab, focusing my team on AI/ML. During this period, I invested my time in deep-learning explorations and worked on video generation and text analysis, among other things.

In 2020, I co-founded Clipdrop. We launched Clipdrop.co & cleanup.pictures. We sold to Stability.ai in Feb 2023. We are now part of Jasper.
