He was a founding partner of Cascadia Wild!, a founding member of TrackersNW, and a former partner at "Where Are Your Keys?" co-developing the approach that led to the craft of Language Hunting.

Willem believes that languages, traditions, and skills are treasures that communities hold as a whole—only by learning together can we create the rich lives we want for each other.
