Billy once asked a friend of his where he could buy a pair of stylish boots. When she responded unfavorably, he went out and found a pair of suitable shoes all on his own. This anecdote doesn't convey very much about Billy, so let's try to do better. Billy is a Los Angeles native, an amateur philosopher, a coffee drinker, suffers from a case of perpetual-studentitis, and is pretty good at typography and design. In spite of all this, Billy is first, and foremost, a human.
