Originally from Massachusetts, Billy's first job in hospitality was as a busser, then server in local Italian restaurant. From there he lived and worked in Boston, MA for 13 years, 9 of which were in various restaurants and roles across the Greater Boston area. He also studied design and graduated with a degree in photography at that time. Billy was named one of Boston's 8 Bartenders You Need to Know in 2014.
In 2015, he moved to Cape Cod and opened the beverage program for Strangers & Saints -- featuring riffs on classic cocktails and an elevated cocktail experience to Provincetown's summer resort community. Warmer temps brought him to Austin in January 2019, where he quickly joined the New Waterloo team as a beverage manager of Central Standard. Billy has since transitioned to overseeing the operations of Otoko + Watertrade.
