Will was born in Lapland and raised by a pack of arctic wolves. After a lie at the age of 13, he spend a short time serving in the Queen’s Royal Fusiliers preferring to ride bareback. This, of course, is what caused his dismissal. He then trekked across the Himalayas with a Sherpa guide just for the fun of it, before ending up in a Siberian gulag for making a pit-stop on the Imperial Russian Czar’s toilet once owned by Nicholas II. Eventually he escaped and smuggled himself aboard a Chinese steamer bound for San Francisco. After landing on the west coast of the U.S. he bicycled over the Rocky Mountains all the way to Virginia, somehow winning the Tour de France along the way. Now he works for WFLO as an announcer and office manager. Most people can not believe, upon meeting him, that he is actually a 72 year old Asian woman.
Really, he is just a quiet guy from Cumberland…..but that’s no fun.
