Will used to be an account man. Working with clients to shift everything from condoms to carrots, booze to banking products, and supers to sim cards, he helped nurse a fair share of ads into the world. He then switched London for Sydney, where he was encouraged to apply for AWARD School. Since then he’s written scripts and developed concepts for clients such as Telstra, NRMA, Uber and Netflix. And he has no plans of stopping there (or moving countries, or changing roles again for that matter).

Who would play you in a film and why?

Elon Musk - yes I know he’s not an actor, but when we smoke we become doppelgängers for some magical reason.

If you were planning a music festival, who – dead or alive – would be your headliner?
MJ. Alive. Question time at the end of his set.

You're given an airplane ticket to anywhere in the world – where do you choose to go (and why)?
Just take me up to 15,000 ft and I’ll jump out. With a decent parachute of course. And preferably over some pacific islands.

What's your favourite memory?
Spearing my first fish in the Marquesas islands, surrounded by bull sharks. Scary but brilliant.

Who is your inspiration?
My mum and my sister. Both fierce AF.

You're on a desert island – what album have you brought with you? 
Congestion Meditation Vol. 1: The calming sounds of inner city traffic for deep sleep.


What would be your death-row dinner?
Carpaccio of Maldivian long line caught yellowfin tuna, accompanied by a market vegetable chop salad with petite herbs and cyanide vinaigrette. Make it quick.

Why Edge?
You mean besides the rooftop hangout?
