My name is Will. I live in Reno with my wife and two young children. I push pixels around until they look pretty. I’m a nonprofit consultant and front-end web developer and my passion lies in creating graphics and coding Web sites. My education in Nevada at Reed High School and the University of Nevada, Reno, paved the way for a Masters from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA and many great life experiences.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with many Congressional offices on Capitol Hill and nationally recognized nonprofits in Washington, DC to manage their online and e-mail marketing campaigns as well as their social media and Web presence. With this experience, I was able to return home and consult nonprofits/non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from all around the world right from the comfort of my own home.
While in Washington, DC I was fortunate to marry my Reed High School crush and have two beautiful children. With children came a yearning to get back to family and where it all started; Reno, NV.
Since returning in 2012, I have found that Reno hasn’t changed much. However, yet it has changed dramatically in several ways. No longer a kid, the city evokes a different emotion than it once did. Seeming like such a small place that once stifled an inspired mind, it now feels like an environment of open possibilities for anyone who wants to embrace it.
It is not only my family that is returning to Reno. Many of our high school friends are returning as well. Several went away to attend law school, travel the world, gain life experience, etc. But almost all are returning to a place they can truly call home.
