ABOUT Billy

I am currently working as a Multimedia Producer for Robert Half, the largest specialized staffing company in the world.

On the side, I work as a freelance filmmaker, video editor, graphic designer, motion graphics artist, web designer, and wedding videographer.

I majored in Cinema-Television at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and minored in Music Recording at the USC Thornton School of Music. I completed my bachelor's degree at USC in 2003 and I participated in the much-coveted summer college internship at Lucasfilm's Industrial Light + Magic in the summer of 2001. I also completed my masters degree in Communication Management in 2010 at the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism where I also worked in the Multimedia Technologies department as a trainer, supervisor, and media producer for several years.

Most recently, I worked as a Multimedia Producer for the San Francisco bureau of The Wall Street Journal where I shot, edited, produced, and published video content for the website and newspaper QR code links.

I currently reside in Clayton, California (in the East San Francisco Bay Area).

In my most recent filmmaking news, my short suspense thriller film G.P.S. premiered in April 2014 at the Sonoma International Film Festival and in Los Angeles at the FirstGlance Film Festival and also played in September 2014 at the California Independent Film Festival in Moraga.

I enjoy playing piano and guitar, swimming, working out, watching my favorite sports teams (USC Trojans, San Francisco 49ers, and San Francisco Giants) and having as much fun with my wife, baby boy, dog, and friends as I can.
