William Purves, MS, GCGSS – Director of Planning and Program Development


Will’s career encompasses a series of overlapping worlds: non-profit management, teaching, school administration, teacher education, game design, writing & editing, non-profit consulting, carpentry, and work with hundreds of students planning and thinking about their future. He moved to SE Michigan in 1992 after living and working in Colorado, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin, earning degrees at various levels in Anthropology, Geography, Urban Planning, and Gaming & Simulation Design. He was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa in 2000, and has steadily lost vision since. He often can be found writing poetry, making and playing games, spending time with his family, and tending backyard chickens.  |  734-971-0277 x 56
