I am humbled and honored to have the chance to train our special forces in state-of-the art audiovisual equipment.
Bill has been an audiovisual guy most of his life, and he used to work for the United Nations. In one case many years ago, Bill's services were needed to help resolve a child abduction case, and the job brought him to central Virginia. Thankfully the case was resolved happily. Bill was captivated by the state. He moved to Fredericksburg and later became the host of an evening music program on WBQB. Bill was on the first Celebrity Cruise with his then fiancée Jane. Now his wife, Jane, an animal lover and world class billiards player, will join Bill on the cruise.
Bill is wildly successful on WBQB radio, but his last two years have taken him in a different direction. Bill was recruited by the military and intelligence services to train US Special Forces across the globe in state-of-the-art audio visual equipment and techniques. He and his team need special clearances to even enter many of the facilities where they train. You're liable to find Bill in Puerto Rico one week, Hawaii the next, and somewhere else in the U. S the following week. "It is a humbling experience to work with these forces. I feel honored to have this opportunity," says Bill.
As for Bill's volunteering, there are too many activities to mention. He donates production services to the Bethany Christian Adoption Services as well as providing charitable A/V services for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life each year. He donates money and provides audiovisual production services to the Grace Oughton Foundation, which battles leukemia and supports families and victims of the disease. Bill also teaches and is currently developing a curriculum for a university in Virginia. He volunteers his time and talents at no charge for the local Sheriff's department and Fire & Rescue. "All this keeps me on the go," says Bill, "but I love radio and audiovisual work, so it's really more fun than work."
