Ryan, this year's team director, is a graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, IN with a degree in Graphic Design. After going to college thinking he would come out with just a degree and some good friends, he had a deep encounter with Jesus along the way. This is his third year serving with FOCUS as a full-time missionary, and he is really excited to share this encounter with students at NYU. Ryan comes from a family of 6 children and loves all things art: from theatre, to music, to graphics.
Will hails from the capital of Red Sox Nation, Boston, MA, but is nonetheless excited to explore Yankee Territory and serve at NYU. Will graduated from Harvard in 2014 with a degree in molecular and cellular biology, a minor in global health and health policy, and a pre-medical focus. Will enjoys running, hiking, the outdoors, music, and theater. He also has experience in scientific research, National Geographic documentaries, startups, and insect collecting. He thinks the Catholic faith is Epic, and he loves Big Questions and Big Answers, but he also deeply appreciates quiet time and the joy of the little thing.
