Overview

Will recently graduated from the University of Delaware with a BS in Information Systems. During his time at Delaware he studied visual media in Cuba, which informed his interest in examining how creative work enhances cross-cultural communication. He hopes to utilize his Spanish language abilities to further explore this relationship in a professional environment, as well as improve his knowledge of Hispanic cultures through creative media. His recent opportunities have included stops at organizations such as SAP and Comcast.

Currently, through his GRA assignment he serves as Assistant Editor of Hivemend, a new publication through the School of Modern Languages at Georgia Tech dedicated to spotlighting speculative fiction from around the globe. His research interests include cross-cultural communication strategies in the business development of creative industries, specifically in Latin America.
