Will is a seasoned adventurer and traveler with a knack for storytelling. If he isn't exploring new places or trying new foods or drinks, then he's probably writing about them.


Will is a freelance writer and blogger based out of Chicago. These days, he specializes in travel, food, and beverage, but he has written about every topic from over-the-counter cold medicine to political instability in Venezuela. In addition to writing, he works as a script supervisor in television and offers his expertise as a consultant to various marketing agencies. Once upon a time, he attended and graduated from Indiana University with a journalism degree.

When Will isn’t working, he is learning new languages, planning trips, or playing piano (poorly).


B.A. Journalism at Indiana University
