Bill was introduced to beekeeping when he was in the Boy Scouts. His fascination and love of bees stayed with him through college and a career in the aerospace industry. Bill established Bill's Bees in 1991 and has been keeping bees for more than 25 years. Bill was the president of the California State Beekeepers Association and for many years was the president of the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association.
