Bill has been heavily involved with bicycle advocacy efforts within the City of New Orleans. He helped champion the Baronne Street Bike Lane, Lafitte Greenway, and other significant bicycle infrastructure improvements through direct organizing, social group rides, and running social media campaigns on behalf of Bike Easy. He focused these advocacy efforts during a critical period where the City of New Orleans and its residents were still debating the merits of bicycle infrastructure on its major thoroughfares. Today, the City has a Complete Streets ordinance that is slowly transforming the city. Bicycle infrastructure is no longer a debate but an explicit mandate. Looking forward, Bill is excited to implement more modern bicycle infrastructure in a professional capacity.
