PLUGGED IN: June 16, 2008

William is our architect. He concepts the back-end development of our projects. It’s no wonder he has an eye for detail giving his extensive knowledge in pinball machines.

MOTTO

THAT’S NO MOON, IT’S A SPACE STATION.

William earned his Bachelor's Degree from the University of Tennessee, and has experience developing database-driven enterprise Intranet and Web solutions using Microsoft technologies. William is a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .Net Framework 3.5 ASP .NET Applications and SharePoint 2010: Application Development.

In his spare time William likes to fly around (he is a licensed private pilot) and recently he bowed to the pressure of living in Florida and earned his Master Scuba Diver certification. When his head isn't underwater he enjoys photography and working on his collection of pinball machines. It’s not surprising he’s a fan of science fiction.
