Our benevolent overlord is an overeducated Brazilian who became an electronics technician at 13, continued in life to get a BS, MS, and PhD in Electrical Engineering, and topped off with an MBA. While taking way too many classes, Bill ran a top engineering design department at Fermilab, the leading high energy and nuclear physics research lab in the USA. After almost a decade in Chicago, Bill moved to San Diego in search of perpetual summers. In San Diego, Bill founded Creative Electron, where he obsesses about building the best x-ray machines in the world. When not on a plane, Bill spends time on the beach listening to Car Talk with his beautiful wife and three kids.
