Down, graduating from the University of Glasgow with a degree in History and Theatre, and a Master's degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Classical and Contemporary Acting. From his studies and personal interests, William has gained valuable experience in events management and marketing having performed and worked with many theatre and film companies, most notably Shakespeare's Globe, London and Bard in the Botanics, Glasgow. He also launched his own theatre company 'Now What Theatre' which toured the UK and the USA, gaining fantastic reviews and winning multiple awards, such as 'Best of the Fringe' at Capital Fringe, Washington DC, and 'Critics' and 'Audience Choice' Awards, Portland Fringe.
