Hi,
I'm Will.

I'm a Software Developer living and working in Bellevue Washington.

I'm currently studying Computer Science and will be attending the University of Washington. I am currently working at Ong Innovations developing primarily business applications in Unity3D with C# for the HoloLens and Virtual Reality devices.


Here is a video of an education tourism project I was large responsible for developing:

I also worked on a smart city visualization application with points of interest and panels of information. We modified it as a demonstration app and added a data sphere with imported solar energy data from the US DOE.

There's another multi-platform app that focuses on recycling education that works on the HoloLens, WMR devices, and iOS with ARKit.

I worked on a multi-user 3D model viewer demonstrated below.

I also built this street sweeper training app shown below.

I also worked at Studio 216 for a short contract to help them out with a couple of projects. The following is a simple project I spearheaded there to demonstrate how different cabinet and table materials and designs would look in a particular laboratory setting. I was responsible for writing every bit of the code new code for this project including revamping the "dollhouse" miniature model you see in the video nearly from scratch. This particular app was build primarily for WMR but works well without modification in the HoloLens.

While at Studio 216 I also developed a traditional 3D photo-realistic experience for desktop to place sculptures in an environment and see how they would look. I was entirely responsible for the controls which included an XBox controller, a flight sim joystick, and mouse/keyboard controls. I also created all the menus and placement/edit behaviors.

Both at Studio 216 and Ong Innovations I have and continue to work closely with Microsoft, specifically the Mixed Reality team, to improve SDKs, developer tools, and provide feedback. 


Before all of this, I graduated High School after only nine years of school rather than the normal twelve. I passed five AP (Advanced Placement) exams in Statistics, Micro-Economics, Chemistry, U.S. History, and Calculus. I've also taken a half dozen courses at De Anza College in Cupertino CA including C++ courses. I transferred to Bellevue College and finished my Associate's Degree and took advanced calculus, C++ data structures, and

In terms of work experience, I started off with an internship at my father's company, Anybots Inc. The company made what are called "telepresence robots". Imagine Skype on wheels if you will. They looked a bit like a Segway without the person.

Between the Old and the New.
I learned Python on the job there and also worked on a mobile android application to control the robot but there were issues with the back-end that prevented it from being usable.

More enjoyably, I worked as an IT consultant at a fantastic small company in San Jose called TapClicks Analytics. I gained lots of valuable professional IT experience and made fantastic professional relationships.

I've worked on a decent number of personal projects based on Python and Java including a group project using regex to comb websites and collect relevant event information. I have developed a solid rudimentary understanding of web development. Notably I've acted as the resident IT guy for friends, family, and myself. I've installed Windows more times than I can count, removed malware in numerous neglected machines, built computers and upgraded components for myself and many others, I've set up backup systems, configured VoIP systems, and recovered my bricked android phone from a bad flash more times than I can count.

I I'm particularly interested in the inner workings of display technologies, processors (namely graphics processors), and electrical chemistry. I also have a desire to study machine learning.

I have lots of experience going to industry events and meeting interesting individuals in tech. I've been to CES, PAX, GDC, Google IO, Microsoft Build, and many Microsoft Mixed Reality events.

Personally, I'm a big fan of hiking, video games, debating for the purposes of understanding, as well as swimming, sailing, and biking.

I'm proficient in German and I've taken two years of French in High School. I've also participated in the speech and debate team, the NJROTC, the soccer team, and a group called Californian's for Justice in my various High Schools.
