Hi! I'm Will

Chicago, IL | San Francisco, CA

I'm a full-stack Software Engineer currently based in Chicago, Illinois and San Francisco, California, with experience in JavaScript/Node.js, Ruby, PostgreSQL, AWS, Docker, React, and Rails.

Most recently, I built Ekko, an open-source framework that provides scalable realtime infrastructure and in-transit message processing for web applications.

Ekko is an open-source framework that allows developers to easily deploy realtime infrastructure for their applications.

Custom serverless functions provide a flexible, modular way to process messages as they pass through the realtime system.
