Presenter bio

Bill’s career in Japanese gardens began when he met Mas Imazumi through the East Bay Bonsai Society. For over eight years Mas mentored Bill, teaching him the art and mechanics of traditional Japanese rock placement and garden building. 


In 2000, Bill and collaborator, Dick Austin, won two gold medals and one silver medal for their design at the San Francisco Garden Show. In 2001, Bill interned with head gardener Tokushirou Tamane at Kinkauji in Kyoto, Japan. Bill is president of the Friends for the Japanese Garden at Lake Merritt, and regularly volunteers at the Merritt Pruning Club and teaches classes.
