I'm a content producer and brand strategist currently working with MicroFame Media—a digital marketing/creative agency that turns consultants (and other idea-based businesses) into thought leaders. Prior to this, I spent nearly half a decade as the Editor-in-Chief of Resource Magazine, an internationally distributed photo, video and creative lifestyle publication. I also served as the Director of Bookings at The Prop Stylist, the first known New York-based agency consisting solely of prop stylists.
Throughout my career, I've worked alongside many influential names in media and Hollywood, such as Casey Neistat, Candice Neistat, Jerome Jarre, Ryan Holiday, Bill Nye, Tosca Musk, James Ryan Ohligher, Nicholas Megalis, and The Russo Brothers, among others. I've also worked on projects for a wide-range of commercial and editorial brands, including Pepsi, PepsiCo, Dos Equis, New York Bakery, PopSugar, Jos. A Bank, Women's Health Magazine, Resource Magazine, Rangefinder Magazine, and more.
In addition, I was a Judge of International Photography Awards 2018/2017, Reviewer at ASMPNY’s Commercial Portfolio Review 2017, Judge of Lomography's TEN AND ONE Awards 2016, Panel Moderator at 2015 EyeEm Festival: The Future of Photojournalism and Storytelling, The Lucie Technical Awards Advisory Board Member (2015-2017), Panel Moderator at 2015 EyeEm Festival: The Future of Photojournalism and Storytelling, and Guest Lecturer at New York Film Academy.
I studied journalism and art history at Purchase College, where I worked as the editor of the campus music and arts publication. Today, I'm based in New York City, yet constantly on the road photographing a new counter culture forming around an emerging band called Space Bacon.
"This really is the most defining (and well written) piece I have ever been a part of. Keeping it accurate it is very important to me. You have a real talent Billy." - Casey Neistat
"The article in Resource was fantastic, man. Thanks again for having me be a part of it." - Nicholas Megalis
"It's not often that a journalist gets it right but you got it totally right with your piece." - Bill Bernstein, photographer (Paul McCartney, Museum of Sex)
"Found your site by mistake (fluke) and ended up reading every piece you've got on there. Love your writing and work as a whole. Definitely shouldn't have spent time on that but really glad I did. Thought I'd be different and say thanks... feeling inspired." - one happy reader
