Billy's sound effects, foley, and dialog editing credits include over 45 feature films, documentaries, and television series. Among those, he has been a foley supervisor, group ADR and sound effects editor on most of Academy Award-winning Steven Soderbergh's films since 2005 including “Behind The Candelabra" for HBO which won 11 Emmys including best sound mixing. He also has extensive experience in every aspect of post sound from turnover through the final mix and M&E, including all versions for final delivery.

From 2005 to 2017, he was a foley supervisor, group ADR, and sound effects editor and an ADR mixer at the Swelltone Labs studio, Larry Blake's post-production sound company in New Orleans. Among the 1000+ sessions he was the ADR mixer/recordist on every episode of the critically-acclaimed HBO series Treme and for the Academy Award best picture nominee Beasts of the Southern Wild, where he was nominated for the Best Sound Editing: Dialogue and ADR in a Feature Film for the 2013 MPSE Golden Reel Awards. It is safe to say that Billy has recorded more ADR than anyone else in the region.

As a native of the New Orleans area, he started at an early age with a keen interest in sound partly due to him experiencing synesthesia. Chromesthesia to be specific. A condition where sounds automatically and involuntarily evoke an experience of shapes and color. Teaching himself to play the guitar in his late teens lead him to eventually play live on stage where he helped tweak the live sound system to satisfy his senses. Later as a freelance live sound engineer with local sound companies, he moved up to a permanent position as head of audio at the audio/video production company, Propaganda Group Inc.

There he was responsible for advancing and mixing large concerts and corporate events around the New Orleans area in venues such as The Superdome, The New Orleans Arena, Harrah's Casino, and Jazz Fest as well as weekly concerts at Bally's Casino and Six Flags New Orleans. A growing interest in digital audio editing and film sound led him to the University of New Orleans in 2004 to study film, working on many projects while there.
