Hi, I'm Billy. Let's talk about creating something ...



I've published a wide variety of articles, from reclaiming the legacy of a forgotten civil rights pioneer to the argument for shorts in the office to political and marketing trends. My portfolio also includes speeches, branded content and screenplays. My work has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, Our State Magazine, FastCompany.com and many other great reads. I regularly pop up as a commentator on TV and editorial pages.



I'm an energetic speaker on topics such as persuasive communications, influencing the political process, building vibrant teams and getting creative. I work hard to keep things fresh, including presenting in 'poolside' mode (see pic above) for a summertime event of the American Marketing Association. I've appeared in many storytelling showcases, taking top honors at the Oak City Bard Brawl.



I’ve developed or produced many TV and film projects. As an exec producer at E!, I shepherded numerous shows to air, among them Joan Rivers’ iconic fashion reviews. Other TV projects include a web series that earned a regional Emmy nod and a TelePictures pilot. Film projects include scripts or treatments developed with Larry Turman (“The Graduate”), Warren Zide (“American Pie”) and Atlas Entertainment (“Wonder Woman”).
