Born in San Luis Obispo, CA, William is a rare California native. He always had an interest in photography, and through his life experiences as a military serviceman, an ex-pat living in Italy, a private pilot, and a software developer he maintained this interest. William's love of travel and the outdoors have put him in unique situations to capture the natural world, and the man-made world of machinery, especially airplanes.
His work has been displayed on television stations, been selected as the weather photo of the day on the Earth Science Picture of the Day site, and has been referenced on other sites. Some of his most unusual photos have been of the sky, either during storms, or in odd meterological conditions.
