On a personal note
Outside of the office, Bill enjoys spending time with his family. A member of the Mensa International Society, he also enjoys the challenge of puzzles. This has led Bill to restore and maintain vintage Audis – he finds the German overengineering and complexity very interesting. Bill is also interested in studying quantum mechanics and particle physics, subjects he misses from his undergraduate studies. He doesn’t expect to come up with the theory of everything or unite general relativity with quantum gravity, but still finds it fascinating.
