You may know Bill as a local stand up comic but he also writes a popular column for The Independent Florida Alligator about addictions to drugs and gambling, as well as intensely heart felt anecdotes from his unique life.

He is a Vietnam veteran, former Bronx firefighter and pub and restaurant owner. This last semester, Bill graduated with a Major in Journalism at the ripe age of 63.

We talk about his life so far and what is yet to come.
