Will was captivated early on with all aspects of design and wasted no time acting on his interest. His talents for web design and natural leadership skills were realized by his high school administrators who tasked him with recontsructing and maintaining the school website. As a high school junior he started his first business, KEPAT Design LLC, a design firm specializing in websites. While also in high school Will won over twenty cross country and track championships. As a college freshman at The University of Georgia Will saw an opportunity to innovate the traditional polo shirt and so he founded The Otter Bay Company with his mission "To provide the World with clothing that conveys class, elegance, and success to wear everywhere for everything." Since founding The Otter Bay Company Will has started The Ink Lizard LLC, a t-shirt company, and another division specializing in the production of e-learning/e-training courses.
Since the company's founding Will has seen the launch of products such as The Keystone Polo, The Keystone Series for Women, The RAFT T-Shirt Collection, and The Gameday Polo. He has been featured in several blogs, magazines, and newspapers across the country. His belief is that clothing should never limit your lifestyle whatever that may be and as such should be capable of serving whatever function you may desire. Clothes created under his leadership are crafted with versatility as the driving force as well as craftsmanship, elegance, and comfort.
