Determined Chef & ex Skater

We were up with the early birds at the Florapark skate bowl to meet Will. 

Hey, I’m Will and I’m 25, I used to be a sponsored downhill skater, but now I just street skate and work as a chef. Oh, and I’m an AVID dog lover.

I’m the kind of guy who sees a problem or a situation and I just think, take it easy, take a step back and let life work it out - and It’s working out pretty well for me.

I suppose I took this kind of ‘mantra’ at a young age. I stopped following people – it gets you nowhere. I just said to myself, “I’m gonna do me”, simple. My life changed, and people love me for me. It’s actually really reassuring.

I don’t know if I’m unique, but I know what’s me, my sense of humour – or the fact that I don’t care if anyone else laughs as long as I can keep myself laughing and happy. Most people have a real hard time with that.  

Don’t get me wrong, I was a dumb kid. I pierced my own lip and ear, I gave myself a tattoo and then removed it again, I just didn’t think about things too much. Even now though, I don’t worry about the future. As long as I’ve got a place with a garden, somewhere for me and my dog Zoe, to run around and chill with, I’ll be happy.

I’ve very direct and bold, 9/10 times it pays off, 1/10 times (okay, 3/10 times) it hurts someone’s feelings, but you’ve gotta stay true to yourself. 

LIVE AND LEAD YOUR OWN LIFE. FIND OUT WHAT’S IMPORTANT WHEN YOU’RE NOT WITH ANYONE ELSE.

Be yourself, chill in your room, walk, see what’s important when you’re alone. Media and its personalities try to confuse you but you’ve gotta… love yourself. It’s hard but love yourself… and drink Grolsch because it tastes good. (Laughs)

We’ve been brewing a premium pilsner with real substance since 1842. A naturally green hop aroma, a crisp finish and a clean, confident bitterness from the combination of two Hallertau hops: Emerald and Magnum.
