My strengths and interests

Get to know William.

What unique personal skills make you great at your role at TwinFocus?

While sometimes I would prefer to just sit in my office with my phone unplugged, I seem to have a great ability to talk to anyone!

If you were not working at TwinFocus and you knew you couldn’t fail at whatever you did, what would you do?

I’d have to be a professional ice hockey goalie—just ask my 13-year-old daughter! I seem to know everything about the position, except how to ice skate.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I’m into golf, dad joke writing, and watching my kids’ sporting events.

What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?

Outside of accomplishments related to my family, I’m most proud of having served in the United States Army.
