Will is a mission-minded thinker who has a passion for inspiring people to change the world for the better. He believes in the power of a story and aims to help JS clients like Delta Air Lines & Orkin use their unique brand voice in a way that enables and inspires others to action.
As a client advisor at JS, Will works to form lasting relationships with our clients, and to serve and support them by helping them receive the maximum benefit of our capabilities as an agency.
Will uses his relationship-minded approach to aid the Delta community engagement team in fostering partnerships with organizations that provide economic mobility, environmental impact and quality education to in-need communities around the world.
Will joined the JS team in 2022 by way of North Point Ministries, where he spent nearly 5 years creating irresistible experiences for students and young adults. As the student director, Will wrote and delivered engaging live and digital content, produced large scale events and worked to equip and empower volunteers to serve their local communities. Will is still actively involved as a community volunteer with Decatur City Serves and NPM’s Be Rich initiatives.
His career started with the Marena Group in digital marketing and advertising and grew as he used his passion for storytelling to launch Blue Jean Media in 2017, specializing in podcast production. Will has helped several companies, churches and business professionals launch podcasts that grow their brand and tell their story. Will has produced interviews with celebrity guests ranging from NFL stars to New York Times best-selling authors, and even hosts a show of his own called The Generation Why Podcast.
Like a true Georgia native, Will graduated cum laude from The University of Georgia’s Grady School of Journalism in Advertising, where he was a Presidential Scholar, and is also an honor graduate of the Music Business Certificate program. Music has always been a part of Will’s life, and while in Athens, he spent his weekends playing corporate events and weddings with his band, The Free, as their front man. Needless to say, if you are having a karaoke night, make sure to invite Will.
Away from work, you can find Will looking for the perfect happy hour with his wife, Jean, exploring new cities or on the golf course with his closest friends. Will has a competitive golf background, competing on the Golf Week Amateur Tour in 2021, where he placed top 10 in the championship flight. Will would tell you that he doesn’t get star struck often, but if you watch the most recent Tiger Woods documentary, you can spot Will chasing Tiger down the 18th fairway to catch a glimpse of his childhood hero as he won the Tour Championship in 2018. He’s the one in the pink shirt.
