Camilla Cho
They're my friends  •  Executive Director of Business Development & Strategy, New York Magazine. Previously General Manager, Strategic Development, The Muse.
Willy has a rare combo of business sense combined with a keen eye for design and user experience. He is also super driven and always challen ... ges himself and contributes through teaching / advising / helping / consulting others.
Angie (Lau) Chang
They're my friends  •  Founder and Creative Lead, Chairs and Cups and SF Event Planner Volunteer, IDSA (The Industrial Designers Society of America).
His abilities span the spectrum between creative genius and analytical business man. He has a knack to know when and how to seize an opportu ... nity.
Johnson Tang
We worked together  •  Adjunct Faculty - Interaction Design, School of Visual Arts and Advisor, Lot 21 Media. University of Pennsylvania grad.
I know Willy on both a professional and personal level. He is undoubtedly one of the most creative personalities I know. And he's got some ... front end web chops to boot; a skill I have yet to find in creative execs at his level. But ideas are cheap; entrepreneurs must be doers and Willy is one of the hardest working person I know. He's not afraid to take on side projects, pro-Bono assignments for non-profits, sit on the board of well established organizations, and travel the world to speak at conferences. And still, he finds time to teach and inspire new generations of designs students. Lastly, entrepreneurs must lead effectively in very tough situations, and having mayor Bloomberg as a client speaks for itself.
Dani Simons
We worked together  •  Director of Corporate Communications & External Affairs, Motivate and Director of Marketing, New York City Bike Share. Brown grad.
Willy is passionate, design-minded, a real systems thinker with big ideas. He's accomplished huge projects that have put NYC and NYC neighbo ... rhoods on the map. He has both the spark and the ability to follow through over time that will help him start things and see them through to something big and amazing.
