Behind the Curtain

I’m Bill Knechtel. Hi!

You could say I grew up with new media. I was lucky enough to be a child when the first generation of home computers became available, and a grandfather that loved tech. I began tapping code into a computer when I was 8. Also in my grandfather’s footsteps, I started running sound at a church when I was 11. I started learning graphic design with a job at a print shop when I was 17. I began working as a deejay when I was 18, and even went to school to learn broadcasting for a couple years (graduation is another story, though ;-) and also began learning web design around the same time. I became a support technician for an ISP at 23, around the same time I began learning photography.

Now in my early forties, I still do all of these things in one form or another.  I’ve always been passionate about media, and am always thrilled to bring others along for the ride.
