I’m an actor and Web Developer living in Brooklyn. I try my best to live by a few rules: 1) Fight to stay always joyful but never satisfied. 2) Everything is a skill and all skills can be grown. 3) Discomfort is usually a fantastic direction to head towards. 4) When you become more curious about what you’re doing than how well you’re doing you will operate at a deeper intelligence than you can possibly understand. 5) All of this is easier said than done, so cut yourself some damn slack already, Will. (Last rule is the hardest)
Two years ago, my grad school classmates decided (why I do not know) that I was probably “techy” enough to manage our class’s promotional webpage. After a bit of panic and several online courses, I fell in love with coding and decided to make it a second parallel career.
I love working scrappy, passionate, innovative teams. I love relentless optimization. I love playing with the intricate machinery, the small details, so that the resulting product feels smooth, effortless, and (hopefully) entertaining to whoever is watching—or clicking. Acting and coding are a surprisingly good overlap.
