During his time at WhatsOnStage, he was able to work on video content at events such as the Olivier Awards, as well as interviewing stage stars such as Sir Mark Rylance, Tim Minchin, Olivia Williams, John Tiffany and Sir Tim Rice. 

As well as spending time at the theatre, Will enjoys spending time at rock concerts (Muse are his favourite band), watching football (a Manchester United fan) and running.
