At the age of 10, Bill started
apprenticing in woodworking with his father. My father taught me the most important carpentry lesson
I ever learned: "If you are going to make something, make sure you do it with the best quality wood, think
it through so you do it right the first time, build it so it lasts a life time, and most important of all, make sure when your
are finished, everyone who sees it says 'wow'."
graduating from St. Margaret's School, Bill attended Lower
Merion High School, and then earned a Bachelors degree in Labor
and Industrial Relations Management from Penn State.
