He is uniquely qualified in both land acquisition and site development construction which makes him an asset to any project he is involved with.


Since K2’s inception in 2020, Bill has entitled over 650 single family lots in various Nashville markets. 

Bill resides in Franklin, TN with his wife and their two children. In his free time, Bill loves to spend time with family and friends, enjoys fly fishing, CrossFit, reading, and serving in his church.
