Will is joining ETC as a project lead in October. He will help design and build a framework for data processing and global content awareness. He was born and raised in Alabama and graduated from the University of South Alabama with a BSEE. His fiber optics professor and mentor, Dr. Gholson, offered him a position with Leidos at the Long Beach, MS office. At Leidos, he spent 4 years working with teams to design and build undersea electronic sensor systems for the Navy. Ready for a new challenge, Will moved to Northern Virginia to work at Manufacturing Techniques where he designed and built prototype hyperspectral and EO/IR sensor systems for the Army. Will enjoys games of all kinds, laying in a hammock, comedy, and rock climbing when he can get in good enough physical shape.
