Bill is joining the LRLR ride for the eleventh time and enjoys being the oldest LRLR member on 2 wheels.  Looking forward to our relay ride and a break from confinement.
 
He retired in May after 35 years as Professor of Theatre and Technical Director at Cal State Fullerton and is enjoying teaching part time for a bit and spending more time at home.  He is the former Technical Director for Center Stage, the Baltimore Opera Company, the Grove Shakespeare Festival, and Shop Forman for National Scenery Studios.  

 

He has been happily married to Barbara for 39 years and would like to thank her and their children Daniel, Jesse & Anna for putting up with his motorcycle habit. 
 
Thanks all of the friends, family, and colleagues who helped sponsor past rides by their generous donations and support for Broadway Cares and Behind the Scenes.
