EXPERIENCE

15 years on the front edge of Los Angeles digital production and content design, including experiential-event, software UX, on-line training & between-the-gaps creative consulting. I’ve been recruited by companies like Apple, Avid Technologies (maker of Media Composer & Pro Tools) & JCPenney, where I fixed programs, identified and developed un-leveraged business and technical linkages & articulated emerging trends and design strategy.

Thinking outside of the box is pretty easy.
Designing solutions "inside the box" of harsh reality is where things get hard...

Steve Jobs never said this, but I did...

WHAT I DO


STRATEGY


Why is it done this way? It’s a question I ask early and often. I’ve helped teams & leaders approach stubborn design problems in new ways. I have wide ranging interests and can often migrate ideas & solutions between disciplines.



STORY


Telling a campfire story is pure Cowboy. Inspiring others to dream above the campfire is Astronaut. The right language builds vision and transforms organizations. As in...“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind…"


VIDEO


Video is music for the eyes. It comes natural to me. I also have fierce OCD regarding decks & web design. I've driven some prancing pixel ponies crazy, including myself, like when I designed this website.
Perfect isn’t. Human is.


MUSIC


I’ve written dark and dreamy electronic music for NBC, Disney, Apple and many others. Curious Fact: studies show musicians solve problems differently & are more fluid, resourceful and successful within disruption. I’m that guy.

"Bill's extremely connected, a great musician, communicator and deal maker. I enjoyed working with him and would work with him again without hesitation!"

Craig Linnsen, Senior Partnership Manager-Music & Audio. Apple Inc

"Bill is brilliant... and executes. A rare combo. There is no one I'd rather have in the trenches with me than him."

Rich Manley, CEO CallSpace
