When not on the phone at work, Will enjoys the Montana outdoors, sporting events, traveling and spending time with his wife, two active boys, and his 8lb Shi Tzu that enjoys herding cattle. He enjoys football and is an ardent fan of the Montana Grizzlies and the Miami Dolphins. Consequently, he is usually in a better mood on Saturdays than on Sundays.
