Do you picture a professional gamer as someone who sits in front of a screen all day and has no other interests? Will challenges that stereotype and invites us to look at gaming in a new way.

Will loves playing tennis, learning Chinese, and challenging himself. An internationally ranked Hearthstone player, Will plays for Team Archon and has been called a “prodigy” by PC Gamer.
