Graduating with a B.S. and Commission from the United States Coast Guard Academy, William started his career as an afloat officer in the Pacific waters of Central and South America. He then served as the Commanding Officer of a patrol cutter, where he led operations in search and rescue, counter-narcotics, and national defense. After completing five years of service and then going through Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service with a degree in international politics and business, William worked as a foreign policy and economic advisor for a presidential campaign in the US. He was then introduced to partnering with Mk Timothy & Company through the Wallenberg International Fellowship.

As a ship captain, William worked at the intersection of multiple disciplines and had to make decisions in high risk situations with imperfect information, whilst going deep on understanding the technology that was critical to his team’s success. William leverages this background and core skill set for his work as an investor.
