He is a graduate of the first graduating class of Woodland Hills High School, the class of 1988. Since the age of fourteen, Mr. Wos has worked as a professional cartoonist and his work has been displayed in museums around the world. He created the world’s largest hand-drawn maze, measuring 140 square feet. Mr. Wos has published several books of mazes and regularly publishes his mazes and cartoons on his website, MazeToons.

The Woodland Hills Interaction Series (WHIS) started in 2013. The WHIS was created by library media specialist Kevin McGuire and instructional technology coach Jason Coleman with the goal of providing first-class interaction opportunities for students at Woodland Hills Jr/Sr High School.

Times Bestseller), Dr. Cyril Wecht, S.L. Price (Sports Illustrated Senior Writer), and Robert Bilheimer (Academy Award nominated director). Additionally, the WHIS has also hosted local writer Dave Newman, poet Jim Daniels, EPA Director Barnes Johnson and U.S. Ambassador Bryant Salter.
