Bill was elected to the Massachusetts State Legislature on November 8, 2016, and took office on January 4, 2017.
In May 2005, Bill, graduated from Boston College and began working behind the scenes in the film and television industry. When Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast in September of 2005, Bill felt compelled to act. He knew if he could get there he could do something to help. What started as a two-week break from his job turned in to a two-year mission to assist underserved communities in Mississippi facing the aftermath of the worst natural disaster in U.S. history, and changed the course of his career.
For more than a decade, Bill provided leadership in the U.S. disaster response arena, organizing volunteers and coordinating across organizations, emergency management professionals, and all levels of government to help families and communities rebuild following natural disasters.
Bill has served in executive leadership roles for three nonprofit organizations, including as Interim President and CEO of National VOAD, the nonprofit industry's association for organizations active in disaster response.
While his disaster response work has taken him across the country and world, Milton has always been home base. Having purchased their first home in 2014 in East Milton Square, Bill and his wife, Beca, are proud to be part of the new wave of young families settling down in the area.
