As a native of the New Orleans area, Billy Theriot started at an early age with a keen interest in sound partly due to his synesthesia. Teaching himself to play the guitar in his late teens lead him to eventually play live on stage where he usually helped tweak the live sound system to satisfy his senses and his curiosity. Later as a freelance live sound engineer with local sound companies he moved up to a permanent position as head of audio at 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.

Since 2005, he has been a sound editor and an ADR mixer/recordist at Swelltone Labs in New Orleans. Among the 300+ 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.

His sound effects, foley and dialog editing credits include over 25 feature films, documentaries and television series. He has been a foley and sound effects editor on all of Academy Award winning Steven Soderbergh's films since 2005 including his recent “Behind The Candelabra" for HBO which won 11 Emmys including best sound mixing and his latest Cinemax series "The Knick". He also has extensive experience in almost every aspect of post sound from turnover through the final mix and M&E, including all versions for final delivery.
