Will joined the Alliance in 2014 to produce photo and video stories for the Chesapeake Bay Program. His work throughout the Bay watershed appears on the Chesapeake Bay Program website, www.chesapeakebay.net.
Will grew up in California’s Central Valley and received a B.S. in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution from the University of California, San Diego. He studied for a master’s degree in photojournalism from Ohio University. Beginning his career in newspaper photography, Will has reported stories about the environment and outdoors from coast to coast on subjects like sustainable fishing in Nova Scotia, sugaring season in Vermont, acid mine drainage in Southeast Ohio, and polluted surf spots near San Diego’s international border with Tijuana.
Whether it’s hiking, paddling or gardening, Will enjoys any excuse to explore outside and rarely leaves his camera behind.
