Hi, I'm Wil.
I like to make things for the web.


Worked as an award-winning photojournalist.

Graduated from Hendrix College with an English literature degree.
Discovered computer science towards the end. Loved it.

Went to Dev Bootcamp. Learned a ton. Realized, without a doubt, what I wanted to do with my life.

Now developing with the good folks at Blueye in Chicago, IL.
