Like the others in the office Bill was born and raised in Olney. After graduating from East Richland high he continued onwards and got his associates degree from Olney Central College. After cycling through many different majors (computer networking, website design, marketing and others), Bill finally decided on pursuing history. In 2011 he graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts. 

After graduating Bill worked at Lake Land library as the daytime librarian, EIU in the archives and in customer service at Rural King while juggling graduate classes. During this time he was lucky enough to meet the love of his life, Chelsea. After getting married and working and living in many different places they came back to live in Olney. Bill worked in transportation, owned a woodworking business, apprenticed as a plumber, worked in IT at IECC, before becoming a full time stay at home dad with the arrival of their second child.

In respects to Rude Wealth, Bill uses his myriad of skills to cover several different jobs. Builder of furniture, installer of electronics, master, creator, and maintainer of the website, head of internet security and anything else that falls through the cracks.
