He teaches storytelling in professional communication at Marylhurst University and assists corporate and non-profit organizations in telling the stories that reflect their values, vision and mission. Will has worked with the Portland based nonprofit Open Hearts Open Minds to integrate dialogue groups, storytelling and theatre into Oregon penitentiaries.
