Will Rivitz is a student at Princeton University in New Jersey who plans to major in computer science. He's written for various Internet publications since 2012, and his ramblings can be found on Sputnikmusic (under the last name Robinson), The 405, The Daily Princetonian, and the Nassau Literary Review. He's still shedding the last vestiges of his teenage/post-teenage angst, and asks that those who roll their eyes at any that makes it into his writing kindly hold their tongues.
