He has ridden in hunter/jumper events, as well as dressage together with his gray Dutch Warmblood, Kingston. He’s helped foster SAFE horses including Sinatra, Marta, and Shay. William works as a Site Reliability Engineer for Google in their Seattle offices with Meta, a rescued German Shepherd, at his side.
