After graduating from Yale University as a Chemistry major, Bill received his MBA from NYU Business School, followed by a year of advanced study at the Wharton Graduate School of Business. Joining the financial industry was expected. What was unanticipated was how fun and rewarding the mortgage business can be. Helping people understand their options so they can make informed decisions is a daily delight.
Along with guiding his friends and clients, Bill has taught innumerable people via seminars and lunch-and-learns at colleges and schools, business groups, corporations and major law firms. More than 18,000 people read his blog each month and heýs earned stellar reviews on Yelp! In recognition of his stature in the field, in 2014 Americaýs Top10 named him the ý#1 Mortgage Broker in Los Angelesý.
This enthusiasm to provide service led to his becoming involved in philanthropic enterprises such as Rotary Club and Friends of the LA River. Many weekends, he and his licensed therapy dog, Ptaxi!, visit assisted living facilities.
For fun, he enjoys experiencing the worldýs cultures and geography. Heýs visited 89 countries, yet feels heýs barely scratched the earthýs surface. Passionate about scuba diving, he carries his dive mask everywhere. True, it wasnýt very useful hiking the Scottish highlands, cycling through Siem Rep or riding horseback in the Sahara, but you never knowý
Bill grew up in Scarsdale, New York amid a household of critters and siblings. He enjoys living in Santa Monica with his wife, the lovely Belle, and her large brood of sisters, parents, in-laws and expanding collection of nieces and nephews. Despite 23 years here, itýs still, ýGo Yankees!ý
ýGo Knicks!ý (Someday!!!)
