William manages operations and product development for Wicked Start. From his first babysitting business as a 12-year-old, William always had a passion for working in and around startups. After graduating from law school, he worked with e-commerce and emerging technology companies, counseling them about the acquisition, protection, and licensing of their intellectual property rights. William also made it a key part of his practice to advise musicians, artists, non-profits and other small businesses on a pro bono basis.
Seeking to expand his horizons, in 2008, William left his job and journeyed to South America, living there for a few months. While on the road, he indulged his passion for photography and developed close relationships with fellow travelers who had started their own businesses. This trip inspired William to devote his life to working with individuals and small businesses that took risks and tried things on their own.
Upon returning from his trip, William became a consultant, providing business and legal information services for early growth-phase businesses. Since joining Wicked Start in early 2012, William's role is to act as director of business operations, making sure that Wicked Start runs a tight ship where all of the pieces come together in a timely, efficient and cost effective manner. Wicked Start embraces his life passion, to create the most dynamic user experience for individuals to achieve their dreams of business creation.
William earned his BS from Cornell University and his JD from Tulane University School of Law.
