How it all began
Bill began studying with the legendary Tony Slydini in 1973, one of the most acknowledged and influential, pure sleight-of-hand experts and teachers of magic of the 20th century. Tony's  style of close-up magic was something that had never been seen before: he was one of the first to show close-up magic as an art in itself, rather than as a lead-in to bigger and grander illusions. Slydini's magic was impromptu: rather than follow a set sequence of tricks, he allowed his audience and the situation to dictate his show. In 1976 Slydini began sponsoring Bill to take his place and allowed him to introduce the long awaited, two-volume book set, The best of Slydini and more .
Bill has lectured Slydini's methods and techniques, as well as his own, to thousands of magicians in over 38 cities across the US and Canada, and is the only student ever to receive special mentions and sponsorship by the great Slydini to lecture on his magic. Each tour has been a resounding success and has established Bill as a major performer, a great influence, inventor, and contributor on the universal magic scene. Bill has presented over 400 lectures to his peers with his video's, books, articles and theories about sleight of hand tricks. Thousands of magicians around the world have adapted and adopted them as their own.  In 1979, in conjunction with Slydini, Bill developed Timing Techniques , aplete timing system designed to assist with the instruction and practice of sleight of hand artistry.
