Billy was born and raised in Ridgewood, Queens. When he was 16, he had the opportunity to enroll in a youth swimming program called “Let's Swim!” at the Flushing Meadows / Corona Park Aquatics Center. The program enabled children and teens from low income families to develop basic knowledge of swimming safety and technique. Billy transitioned from the program and joined the Flushing Meadows club team - which helped instill discipline and respect not only for the water but for other people in his life. He soon earned his certifications as a Lifeguard and has over five years experience as an aquatics instructor. Billy is working on his Associates degree in Fine Arts at Laguardia Community College and is pursuing stand-up comedy. Some hobbies include doing open mics, podcasting, and attending live concerts and festivals.
