As a child and teenager, whether it was in a lip sync, talent show, or one of the several annual musicals, Billy was always performing. While attending University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Billy studied under and worked alongside several theater professionals and engaged in opportunities that expanded his theatrical repertoire. During the Summer of 2016, he worked as an acting apprentice at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. After graduation, he pursued his acting career through various community theatres in the Boston area, as well as the Umbrella Stage Company in Concord, MA. He is currently enrolled in the Full Time Conservatory at the Atlantic Acting School in NYC.
Billy's directorial debut was with a production of I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change during his senior year of high school. While at UMass he took part in several directing classes to build on his skills with the goal of directing a musical as his Honors Capstone Project. He achieved this goal by directing and producing Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's Spring Awakening in one of the UMass Theater Department's mainstage spaces, which, as an undergraduate student, is an honor. His hard work was recognized by the UMass Theater Department Faculty by bestowing him with the Rand Scholarship, an award given to an undergraduate student who has excelled in directing and/or dramaturgy.
Billy is an honors graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where he studied Theater Performance. His non-theater interests include baking, traveling to Disney World, finding hidden coffee and pie shops, and sleeping. He currently lives in New York City with his fiancé, Jon, and their cat, Dorian.
