March 30, 2021 Bill is our newest Digital Art Facilitator. He’s an Eagle Scout, musician, social media manager, digital art extraordinaire, ex-farmer, & TBI survivor. Bill had an artistic childhood. As a teenager he taught himself graffiti, photography, & various digital mediums. Bill studied 3D animation throughout high school, but decided to pursue fine art, later taking ‘freshman art’ as a senior. He studied under scholarship at The Maine College of Art (MECA), majoring in printmaking but studying all disciplines. Bill spent his following years living off grid at a small farm on an island, providing paraprofessional mental health support in NJ after Super Storm Sandy, then developing a broad freelance practice while working as a Social Media & Design Specialist at a farm in North Jersey. In 2017, Bill sustained a TBI during a catastrophic motor vehicle accident. His recovery brought him to the WAE Center, where he is currently developing our Digital Art Program & teaching Creativity with Nature; a remote class in our WAE to Connect programming. He has assisted in art studio classes, our Workability program, & facilitated the international Photo Pen Pal Club. In his free time he enjoys making beats, skiing, hiking, caring for plants, & cooking for his wife.
