Hi all I'm Will. 🙂
This blog (or newsletter if you like) is basically a long form version of my twitter
My background is in software engineering.
I currently run a full stack application (web and mobile) software engineering firm https://will.vc/ where I serve as a tech lead developing and project managing for customers in a variety of fields. Always open to new opportunities if the fit is right.
Arthur C. Clarke once said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." From a young age, I knew I wanted to be a magician.
I've loved tech since I was a kid playing games on my dad's Windows 3.1 machine.
Throughout my career, I've built software cross-platform:
from pre-launch to user bases in the 100 millions
Across 12 unique technology stacks
with startup teams from 2 person seed to 100s at Series D totaling ~ $300+ MM raised
also, with the 4000+ engineering team of LinkedIn pre(and post) MSFT acquisition.
I enjoy product engineering 👨🏿🔬.
That is being one who works with other roles at a company (product, biz dev, sales, etc.) to figure out how to turn what we want to do for our customers and the business into code. Then shepherds that into production and manages the ROI lifecycle.
I’m not all business 😅
