Previous to starting FLASHcap Interactive, Bill worked in the New York fashion industry running the technical design portion of Liz Claiborne’s RUSS division and was a technical designer for Clifford and Wills, a former catalog division of J.Crew. Bill graduated with a Master’s Degree in Architecture from the University of Cincinnati, OH with a minor in Fine Art Ceramics. Bill has been involved in the Classical Realist movement promoting traditional realist painting and actively paints in a small studio in Chelsea’s Gallery district. He has been working on a book on the life of Emil Carlsen, Emil Carlsen: The Complete Known Works. He has lectured around the country on antique and design trends giving his well known industry forecast at locations like High Point Furniture Market, the largest furniture show in the world.
