Will became the manager of a remote engineering team while maintaining his responsibilities as a process engineer for a manufacturing line, and developing and launching two products to market. Somewhere between the travel, his work and his home life he studied for his master’s degree and his professional engineering designation. His career trajectory towards the space industry was kicked off in university where he was the captain of the space engineering team. The team entered rover competitions and placed first in Canada, second in North America and sixth worldwide.

Fun fact: Will is a dedicated family man and an avid hockey player, playing in games at least twice a week.
