His collaborative approach, attention to detail, and commitment to bringing out the best in his artists have made him a trusted partner in the studio, working with a diverse range of artists, from up-and-coming singer-songwriters to established names in the folk and Americana scenes.

Will had an early start in music, taking up piano, guitar and double bass by age 11, and playing in folk groups, rock bands and orchestras throughout his youth. Will's musical journey continued at Rice University, where he studied classical double bass performance with esteemed professor Paul Ellison. When he was temporarily sidelined by an injury, he focused on his passion for conducting and arranging by founding and leading an a cappella group. This burgeoning interest, coupled with experiences in conducting at the Kodaly Institute in Hungary, set him on a path of exploration into what it means to bring a musical vision to life.

After leaving Rice, Will moved to Boston to pursue music production and engineering at Berklee College of Music. He immersed himself in theory and practice, honing his skills through hands-on experience, ensemble performances, and internships at world-famous recording studios. (He also realized he was a natural teacher, and for 15 years, he taught music production classes at Berklee Online.)

He takes the time to understand each artist's unique voice, helping them bring their musical ideas to life. This approach has earned him high praise from the artists he has worked with over the years.
"He has an incredibly broad vocabulary, and the nuance of communication to understand how to turn rantings into actual music."

Danny Schmidt, a folk singer-songwriter based in Nashville, describes working with Will as "a joy," praising his "gentle, loving, highly engaged and invested way" of involving himself in a project at the most core human level. He continues, "Will's one of those rare people that can speak in abstract poetry with the songwriter and then turn around and speak in beats and measures with the drummer, in microtones with the violin player, and in scales and intervals with the harmony singers. He has an incredibly broad vocabulary, and the nuance of communication to understand how to turn rantings into actual music. ...I'm very very thankful for his expertise. And I'm very very thankful for how committed he was to this project from our very first conversation through our final listen to the final master."

In addition to his work as a producer, Will is a talented composer and arranger, with his choral works featured on numerous albums and his compositions garnering awards and honors. He also serves as the chorus director of Congregation Bet Haverim, a reconstructionist synagogue in Atlanta.
