About

Will Dowd Boston Public Library.jpg

I’m a writer.

I was born and raised in Braintree, Massachusetts, which I’ve never really gotten over, and educated at Boston College, MIT and New York University (CV).

Due to a visual impairment, I see the world slightly differently.

I’ve spoken about it on the radio.
