Will first got involved with boating when he was on a family vacation on the Salmon River. He later attended a 50-day Outward Bound leadership course that gave him the confidence to apply to be a guide. Born and raised in Spokane, Washington, Will is currently a junior at Eastern Washington University, enrolled in a social work program. His love of the Inland Northwest runs deep, and stems from the variety of activities available at his fingertips; hiking, mountain biking, rafting, skiing, and so on. He grew up hiking, hunting and fishing with his dad in local areas around Spokane. He can often be found studying for class or scrambling up nearby peaks. Will enjoys teaching younger kids in an outdoor setting, and has an over-abundance of cheesy jokes he likes to tell. Maybe you'll catch one on the river with him sometime!
