Bill was born in Canada and immigrated to Spokane, Washington at age 2.  He spent 50 years in the real estate industry beginning as a broker in Spokane and ending up as the President of Century 21 China where he oversaw China’s largest real estate group with 20,000 agents in 1500 offices and 31 cities.  In between, he lived overseas for 20 years helping Century 21 Real Estate expand in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, and Latin America.  From 2011 to 2018 he assisted Keller Williams Real Estate with their global expansion into 43 countries.

He is a published author of two books, Memoirs of a Franchise Gypsy, and Insights from a Franchise Insider which detail his experiences working globally with lessons learned in the franchise industry.  Both are available at 

After retiring Bill took up wood carving and began creating his Fence Post Ducks using 100-year-old cedar posts from the Central Oregon cattle ranches.   Being a golfer and fisherman, he decided to expand his art into his Golf Art Series and Fish Art by repurposing rare persimmon wood clubs with hand-carved duck heads to make a perfect, one-of-a-kind gift as well as stringers of juniper wood fish.   He has participated in many arts and craft shows in the past 4 years around Central Oregon. 

Bill and his wife Gilda retired to Central Oregon in 2016 and live in Redmond at the Eagle Crest Resort.
