Will's Bio

Born and raised in Atlanta, I am now an undergrad student at Georgia Tech expecting to graduate in May 2020. At Tech, I am studying Computer Science with a minor in Spanish. After undergrad, I hope to pursue a master’s degree in Machine Learning. Outside of class I enjoy travelling, running and hiking, and reading anything by Malcom Gladwell that I can get my hands on.
