He was involved in the design of many wooden roller coasters, including those built by Summers in conjunction with Dinn Corporation.[2] Following Summer's death in 1992 and the closure of Dinn Corporation, Bill was hired by Custom Coasters International, along with several other former employees of Curtis D. Summers, Inc.[3]

Following the closure of Custom Coasters International in July 2002, four former employees including Bill went on to form The Gravity Group later that year.
