His spent his youth in Seattle Washington and later finished his education
at The University of North Texas in Denton.
Soon after, he was accepted into the prestigious Henry Mancini Institute prompting his
move to Southern California and it was in Los Angeles where his career
blossomed. With his broad Jazz pedigree,
Bill made his name working with both large and small ensembles locally and
abroad. But his interests go beyond Jazz
music as his expertise in both Broadway pit orchestras or pop bands are every
bit an equal to session work and composition/arranging. Besides twenty-five years of professional experience,
Bill takes great pride in educating future generations as a faculty member of
Los Angeles’s premier arts academy, the Los
Angeles County High School for the Arts.
When not making music, he writes science fiction and enjoys the
company of his French Bulldogs Captain
and Mei Mei. Bill is endorsed by TAMA drums and VATER drumsticks.
