Bill is a professional actor, producer, director, screenwriter and drama coach with over 35 years of experience in the entertainment industry. He credits his participation in high school plays with empowering him to overcome extreme shyness and a severe stutter. Since those formative teen years, Bill has performed on Broadway, in regional theaters, in movies, primetime and daytime TV programs, TV commercials, cartoons, and in cabarets and nightclubs around the US and Europe. He is known to daytime audiences for his portrayal of “Alfred Vanderpool” on the ABC daytime drama, “All My Children.” He can currently be seen in the recurring role of “Senator Royce” on the new SyFy Channel TV series 12 MONKEYS. Bill was a regular roster member and emcee at NYC’s famed Original Improv Comedy Club. He also performed his stand-up act in clubs and colleges throughout the country. He studied Improvisation techniques with Michael Patrick King (writer/producer of TV’s “Sex and the City”) and at The Magnet Theater School in Manhattan. Bill has taught acting, creative writing and oral communications on the university level, and he privately coaches both student and professional actors in New York City. Actor Bryan Cranston (multiple Emmy Award-winner for TV’s “Breaking Bad”) hired Bill to serve as his dialogue coach during the out-of-town engagement of the new play ALL THE WAY. When the production moved to Broadway, the play won the “Best Play” Tony Award and Cranston’s portrayal of President Lyndon B. Johnson earned him the “Best Actor in a Play” Tony Award. In 2012, Bill produced a one-hour, live morning news TV show that broadcast from the NYC metropolitan area for global audiences, from which he discovered how to help people overcome the most common presentation mistakes. Whether preparing for a speech, a TV appearance, a big meeting or a one-on-one communication, Bill uses his theatrical background to help clients be stronger, more effective communicators.
