Will grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, where he became a die-hard fan of the Chicago White Sox and hot dogs (really). Will completed his undergraduate studies at Yale University, where he majored in Ethics, Politics and Economics and spent a semester studying abroad at Oxford University. After graduating Magna Cum Laude, Will began his career as an investment banking analyst with an M&A advisory firm, and later brought that experience to a U.S. business task force in Afghanistan. Most recently, Will worked on counterterrorism intelligence matters for New York City.
Currently, Will is a dual MBA and Masters of International Affairs candidate at Columbia University. Will’s hobbies include whipping up Italian food in his small NYC kitchen, as well as emerging market travel (recently to Cuba, China, Poland, Myanmar) and pro-bono consulting (Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan).
