While pursuing his Master of Architecture at the University of Minnesota, Will discovered immersive virtual reality (VR) and its potential to impact design and construction. During that program, He began researching real-world applications of VR with Mortenson in 2013. He's now living his childhood dream of being an inventor as an Emerging Technologies Developer with Mortenson, building a division focused on developing and applying emerging technology. His passion for architecture, programming, and novel technology has led him to explore how the intersection of these fields can positively impact the rapidly-changing building industry.
Will really appreciates the variety that his role brings him, being involved in all parts of the project development and delivery process. He likes working with customers to help them understand the possibilities of what we can do for them, create that vision, and then ultimately bring that vision to fruition. He also finds developing, from writing and refining code to getting it to work, extremely satisfying.
