"I worked with Bill developing a first MVP for a key project. His support was instrumental in getting the project off the ground -- not just advising on technical aspects of the app, he also provided strategic advice regarding MVP objectives, sequencing of the build-out, user flow considerations, look / feel solutions, product optimization decisions, and more. I recommend him as an invaluable resource for help defining your vision."

"On my last project, I leveraged Bill's expertise to build an MVP for a Financial Betting concept. I had the experience in the baseball sabermetrics and Bill was extremely quick to understand the scope. Bill worked fervently and quickly to put together the MVP and delivered a thorough product. He showed his deep experience in tensorflow and web scraping to develop the proof of concept. I would highly recommend using Bill to build out your next vision."

"Bill has the rare ability to bring order from complexity. He dove into a large and tangled codebase, and delivered what was needed in a fraction of the expected time. He has a clearheaded view of technical choices, and communicates them as such."

"Will has an excellent ability to cut through the multiple needs we have and to intelligently prioritize them, and deliver on them quickly. Our product timeline was to be about 6 months for completion. Will had us set up with a workable, scalable product in less than 75 days. He smartly left out features that were not core to our initial target market, and for the same cost and timeline, we will have almost 3 months of user feedback and stress testing, additional features, and twice the user base. Highly recommended as a trusted advisor to get products (and whole companies) off the ground more economically."

"I hired Bill to build an MVP for a native app I was building for my hospitality company. We spent about six months working together on it and after much back and forth we launched with overwhelmingly positive user feedback. Bill was very open to my ideas during the entire process and helped me avoid what would have been some costly mistakes. I will not be building another app without hiring Bill first."

"Right before Y Combinator in 2018, we hired Bill to lead an ML project to detect adverse health effects using a monocular camera and pose estimation. Bill effectively served as an interim startup CTO and getting us to an MVP level and helped hire the first engineers on the team. Bill brings a mature approach to startups by focusing the scope and drawing from a breadth of different engineering experience. Ultimately, just a few months after, we launched a few PoCs and raised a $2M+ seed round led by Lightspeed Ventures."

"Bill was able to come up to speed on networking automation in a very short time, taking over from a staff engineer. There are many complex configurations that needed untangling; Bill wrote client code that is fault tolerant and resilient, fitting into the overall architecture of the system. His solution is robust and thoughtful, and it prevents outages to this day, a very wide impact. He has been responsive and eager to help in time-sensitive new installations."

"I have worked with Bill on several projects providing input on the visual design of desktop and mobile software interfaces . As a designer, it's extremely valuable to have a project lead who can be clear about the goals of a project both functionally and aesthetically. Bill is always very specific about what we need to work on, whether it be higher-level workflow or implementation details. I think Bill has a good sense for balancing technical-needs with user-needs; we're often on the same page about what things are important or not. Bill is also able to clearly and simply explain the engineering constraints of projects, which really helps us keep design iterations focused on the right things. On a more personal level Bill is very accommodating of schedule and logistical needs, and creates a very trustworthy and honest relationship. I appreciate his interest in the "behind the scenes" of my design work and is not trying to rush or strong-arm the design process."
