He has over seventeen years of experience working in film and commercial production and post-production for such clients as HBO, MTV, Saatchi & Saatchi and Panasonic. He has worked professionally as a writer, director and producer for such clients as the IBT International and SEIU and as an editor under his own banner cutting shorts, industrials, commercials, and promos.

Along the way, he’s always cultivated his cinematic voice through screenwriting. His work has been submitted to and reviewed by Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures and Harvey Keitel’s production shingle, The Goatsingers to name a few. In 2005, he wrote and directed a short film from his original script, THE FACE OF THE EARTH, which was a Quarterfinalist in the CineStory Screenwriting Awards 2003 Short Category. His screenplay, DYRE AVENUE was in the BlueCat Screenwriting 2007 Competition Top Ten Percent.

He lives in Brooklyn with his beautiful better half, Linda and their amazing, Minecraft-loving son, Nico. When he’s not picking his son up from school he’s working on several screenplays and making films.

He is also part of the NYC-based film collective, THE 3X3 PROJECT which was successfully funded via Kickstarter in late 2013. William’s short film from that collection, THE EXAM, is currently on the festival circuit and available to stream. 

He has also contributed to RogerEbert.com and NoFilmSchool.
