After BA Systems, Will founded Studio Codeworks to return to mobile and big data processing. Under Will’s leadership, Studio Codeworks entered the video gaming market, and released the award winning game, DibDibs, and solidified partnerships with original content creators to bring their creations to the screen.  Studio’s engineering talent is also instrumental in places people don’t see; including tracking and protecting the assets of the 500 acres that make up the US Capitol complex, and killing germs and biological agents for Pfizer.
