    A week after high school, Will took a job at the public library that he often visited as a child. In the first few years, he held various part-time positions within the system.

    He found his calling while working in the library’s Children’s Department and ended up spending 20+ years working with children. However, his work isn’t limited to the youngest library patrons. He planned and performed programs for preschoolers through senior citizens both in the library and throughout northwest Missouri. Through trial and error at these programs, Will honed his storytelling and teaching skills.

    Most great stories have dark moments, for Will it was a heart attack in his mid 30’s. While in the hospital, he had time to reflect on the impact he was making in his own community. He was proud of what he had accomplished but he felt he could do so much more. He made a full recovery and with the encouragement of many people, Will decided that he needed to teach others why their story is important. He also wanted teach people the skills and tips he had learned regarding the art of storytelling. He also relishes the opportunity to educate and entertain children of all ages. So with these things in mind Will made the bittersweet decision to step away from his library career and take the leap into full time speaker, entertainer and educator.
