As a long time personal friend and colleague of Music Bridges founder Alan Roy Scott, Bill has now joined the MB team, bringing his own extensive background and blend of sales, marketing, organizational skills, and musical experience into the service of Music Bridges and its’ intended growth as a truly global brand.

Although his early years were spent fostering a personal intense love for music that saw him develop his singing and guitar skills by being part of several rock bands around his native Boston (and later to even co-founding Irie Music, a management company that booked bands into clubs around New England), he eventually ended up shifting gears and majoring in business communications at both the University of Massachusetts and Emerson College from where he received his Bachelors Degree.

After graduation and a few years sojourn working in, and eventually heading up the family real estate business “Robins Realty Inc.”, Bill then made the major decision to move to Los Angeles, in the aim of pursuing his larger ambition; to build a life and career that would encompass both his business training and life long passion for music.

He first worked in management with “Communicom Cable TV,” then the largest cable TV franchise in Los Angeles, followed by a 10 year stint with Pioneer Life and Health where he rose to the level of VP/Sales. Along the way he also worked for First Choice Moving and Storage in various capacities. He was recruited as a political consultant on behalf of Bally and Trump Casinos in their common efforts towards legalizing gambling in the state of Florida. But in the eclectic fashion that is part of Bill’s character, while there he also found himself back in bands singing and playing guitar in various hotels and clubs at night, even with all of his business activities during the day.

Bill has also traveled extensively over the course of his life and career. He actually first met Alan in Bali, Indonesia while working as a buyer for “Hello Bali” importing textiles to the U.S., as Alan was just returning from, his “Pacific Harmony” event there. They’ve remained close friends and colleagues ever since. All of which has led him full circle to taking his current role in Music Bridges as Senior Vice President of Project Development. Bill is thrilled to have this current role at Music Bridges where he can combine the business and organizational acumen he has gained over the years, with his deep and personal love and appreciation for music and all that it can do to help heal the divides that plague the world.
