Billy joined the Grand Classroom crew as a seasonal guide in 2011 and has been fulltime salesperson since 2013. A self-proclaimed “beach bum” and Florida guide extraordinaire, this New York transplant grew up on the South Shore of Long Island. He graduated with a BS in Environmental Sciences from the University of Buffalo, NY where he played football. He quickly fled to warmer climates and has been a Florida native ever since. Prior to Grand Classroom, Billy was a biologist in the Florida Keys, Turks and Caicos Islands and High School Science Teacher in Sarasota/Bradenton where he currently resides.
