Hey, I'm William.

I love making web apps, attending hackathons, and curating my music collection. I'm most known for my work on the Lifeboat Network for Minecraft PE, co-founding it and bringing it to over ten million registered players. For more information about my professional work, see my resumé. If you scroll down, I've picked out some of my favorite projects for you to check out. Thanks for stopping by!
