Bill started in the communications business when he was 5 . . . broadcasting music to the neighborhood from his bedroom window. After time out for school, he worked for two all-news radio stations in Washington, D.C., and for KIRO Newsradio and KVI Radio in Seattle. He also spent seven years as a street reporter and assignment editor for Seattle's Channel 11 and served a couple of tours as a campaign press secretary.

Bill published the company newspaper at Weyerhaeuser for six years. He served as employee communications manager for AT&T Wireless, where he helped create one of the first intranets anywhere. He kept information flowing to more than 5,000 employees in REI stores across the U.S. and in Japan, and oversaw employee communications at Terabeam, a storied high-tech startup. He also managed a team of communications consultants at Seattle's Group Health and helmed the internal communications function at Symetra.

Bill spent five years as a partner at Outsource Marketing, working with clients that included Expedia, Safeco, Cray, Starbucks, Microsoft, Puget Sound Energy, RealNetworks, Corbis, T-Mobile, TrueBlue and more.

Now he's available to help you tell your story effectively — internally and externally — through every appropriate channel.

Bill has a degree in communications from Ohio University. He is accredited by the International Association of Business Communicators. He founded IABC/Seattle's Morning Manager series and co-founded the Seattle Internal Communications Leaders Forum. He's a founding director of the Information Overload Research Group. He also won three awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, eight IABC Gold Quill awards, and a Bronze Anvil from PRSA.
