Bill was born and raised in Virginia and graduated from the College of William and Mary with a degree in physics. He worked for 31 years at Hughes Network Systems in Germantown Maryland as a sales engineer, focusing on wide area network designs for Fortune 500 companies. He and his wife, Rikki, have a son who is a software engineer in Seattle, Washington.
After retiring in 2011, Bill and Rikki hit the road in their RV touring the United States. They spent 2 winters in Tucson, which convinced them to sell their house in Maryland and settle in the Old Pueblo. Bill enjoys golf, biking and hiking, and he is looking forward to contributing to the community through his service with Kiwanis
