As a performer he has toured both nationally/ internationally in ten different countries as a featured performing artist. William most recently appeared in the NYC based Staged Reading of “The Journey Home” where he originated the role of Delany. He was also a featured dancer/singer in the music video for "Gorgine" by Natalie Joy Johnson.

When he's not performing or teaching you can find him cuddled up with his 2-year-old pup Phyllis.
