It's fairly difficult to make a website devoted to yourself without coming off as a just a wee bit narcissistic. So lets just dive right in and start talking about how great I am. You can probably glean everything you need to know about me from the following tweet:
Dot files, hot files, got my bash script looking like I bought files - you cash stripped, weak equipped. Your bashrc? nondescript #NerdRap— Will Washburn (@willwashburn) April 8, 2013
So clearly I'm pretty gangsta. At the same time, I once bought my family these "ChristmasJammies". They were kind enough to wear them and allow a picture to be taken.
The fact is I'm just one of the luckiest guys in the world who is determined to not let my good fortune go to waste. I'm looking to make an impact on the universe, but I get that it takes time. I one day hope to be a father my children are proud of.
I'm also a nerd that likes to play with technology that I can use in hackathons. That wasn't supposed to sound like a joke, but it did.
I'm the Vice President of Engineering at where we're making world-class marketing easy for everyone. Interested? Join our team!
Before that I tried my hand selling wine in China. I flew to the opposite side of the world to sell something I don't drink in a language I never spoke; suck it haters! Bravado was not something we lacked. Funding, licences and a general plan, however, were.
That was all powered by success with ConnectedGreek. What started as a chore project in college turned into a full fledged business when I graduated. For five years we created websites and provided tools for organizations on college campuses across the country.
However, my first startup will always have a special place in my heart. We purchased text books on Amazon and sold them on campus at a significant discount as compared to the local bookstore. At the time, the margins were pretty huge!
