Hi! I'm Will, and I'm a photographer

For about a decade that's how I've self-identified. Outside of "human", "son", "brother" and "New York Rangers fan" it's probably the role I've inhabited the longest. For about a decade photographer was the most important role I had. Now as a husband and father, that qualification has dropped down the list, and the volatility of the career I built for a decade has grown so severe that I'm taking a big step to shift away from its importance in my family's life.

In a little over a week I'm starting a new adventure at Flatiron School. I'll be studying web development with a class of awesome people, learning at lightning speed to build incredible websites and online tools.

Hi, I'm Will. I'm a husband and a father, and I’m going to build amazing things for the web.

I still love photography. For me, family comes first, and success in photography has become difficult without a ton of travel, keeping me away from my amazing wife and beautiful daughter for much longer than I want. This is an opportunity for me to learn a bunch of new skills, and to continue working in a field that is simultaneously creative and technical - to provide opportunity for my family and myself to grow, and to just flat out build cool things to aide our increasingly connected lives.

I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm anxious. I'm REALLY excited. This is going to be awesome.
