Will Justis started his career in a middle school web programming class. He had no idea that learning the basics of computer technology would lead to the passion that drives him today. But Will's motivation was not limited to the ones and zeros going across the screen, but something much larger: the yearning for knowledge.

At the same time Will enrolled in the middle school programming course, he began German, band, and general science courses. Once into high school, he entered into more advanced computer science classes, continued German, and found himself among other like-minded thinkers in physics and history courses. Outside of school Will became the head of German club, travelled to Germany twice as an exchanged student, was the vice president of Colorado Technology Student Association, participated in many Vex/First robotics competitions, and taught web programming to a group of students. Nearing the end of his high school experience, Will completed two consecutive years of senior projects, producing an online Flash game followed by a multiplayer 3D first-person shooter.

Will promptly headed off to CU after he received his high school diploma. But Will had become a little burned out after many years of programming, so he started on an eletrical engineering major along with two minors of German and Russian. That was short-lived and Will quickly found himself pursuing a degree in Computer Science. Needless to say, being burned out does not simply disappear, and grades started plummetting. Rather than homework, Will found a job as a technical lead for the Department of Communication, enjoyed rock climbing and training Muay Thai, and utilized university benefits until he was put on academic probation for skipping a few too many classes. It was at that point that structured learning did not have the shimmer it once had, and Will departed from the university to pursue real world experience.

Today will can be found developing for Distillery Solutions out of Denver, as well as private software contracting under JAW Development.
