About Bill

My pre-Lehigh Valley, PA career is itemized below, but after swimming against the strong upstream current we all know as FILMMAKING, I launched FIFO (Fade in/Fade Out), a Lehigh Valley-based, non-profit filmmaking consortium, with the ambitious goal of harnessing all the diverse talent and resources around here to raise the filmmaking bar and cultivate filmmaking. So if you're interested, let me know...we meet every first Tuesday of the month at the Two Rivers Brewing Company, 542 Northampton St., Easton, PA at 6:30 p.m.

Looking back - During a circuitous but never boring career, three main interests - writing, photography and performing - collided when I discovered filmmaking. Now I write screenplays, short stories, the occasional novel and follow my natural entrepreneurial spirit, all the while continuing to hone my filmmaking skills.

FIFO produces short films based on screenplays from a variety of sources, in an effort to help other filmmaking creatives realize their dreams and goals. CINEMA & SUDS is a celebration of short films and craft beers, aimed specifically at garnering exposure for filmmakers by showcasing short films at brewpubs.
