Billy has a degree in mechanical engineering. He worked for the Federal Aviation Administration for over 16 years. When Billy was 18 years old, he had a spinal cord injury. He felt his life was over as he lost his ability to move and enjoy the active lifestyle he loved. But his family and friends encouraged him to get through dark times.
Sometime later, he met his old friend, Darin Donaldson, who introduced him to entrepreneurship and his shoe company. Billy came up with the idea of adding zippers to shoes. This universal and convenient shoe design eventually led him to BILLY Footwear.
