The strength of this community and deep connectivity among the neighbors stand out as core values that resonate deeply for Will. Alongside the high quality of life, verdant gardens, tree lined streets, many parks, and walkable coffee shops in two directions, the community spirit was among the many qualities that drew his family to this particular pocket of Philadelphia from Seattle last year. Will draws on his passion for stewardship of public space as a Master Watershed Steward for Carpenters Woods, and brings his real estate development expertise to the neighborhood zoning committee.
Will is excited to bring his years of construction and real estate experience to the neighborhood board to assist in navigating the current wave of development activity. An alumni from Brown in Architectural History and Urban Studies, he is passionate about urban design and the shared experience of public space. Having served in board positions with community nonprofits in the past, Will has earned some useful perspective on how to draw forth the voices of all of the stakeholders that may not otherwise be heard or empowered. As a member of the WMAN board, he hopes to be an advocate for robust discussion that brings the neighbors together and collaborative effort that delivers proactive and thoughtful progress.
