Hello, my name is Will and I am the creator of RealMeal. Born and bred in the North Yorkshire Moors, I was never without a racket or ball in hand. After school I spent 6 months in New Zealand before attending Loughborough University where I read Geography, (but mainly played rugby). Leaving university, I went professional at Doncaster Knights in the Championship Division, before the lure of city life dragged me to London, where I worked as a shipbroker. Discontent with the hours sitting in front of a screen, I decided to join the Army, attending the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and eventually commissioning into the 1st The Queens Dragoon Guards. It is here I have been serving for the past 7 years. I have had a varied and exciting time in the Army, with training exercises in Sierra Leone, California and Iraq, representing Army rugby in front of 80,000 people at Twickenham, and instructing the next generation of soldiers and officers. I have also been fortunate enough along the way to meet my wife, Jessica, who for some reason agreed to marry me in 2018. We now have a baby girl, Sienna, who was born in April 2020.
