Wil Speidel

Preservationist, promoter, writer, entrepreneur, adman, ghoul


Wil is a spry man, always on the move with a sense of purpose. His wit and irreverent sense of humour are engaging whilst his unflagging enthusiasm for Seattle’s history infectious.


Wil graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in literature. Out of school, he landed a job as a reporter for the Seattle Times and also wrote a column for the defunct Seattle Star.

He became an ardent preservationist, in particular he worked feverishly to protect Pioneer Square.

Tiberius is Wil’s Regnant.
