Bill lived in Queens for 8 years and now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. He started playing piano at the age of 2 and composing around age 8. He also has played viola since age 12.

Bill creates his music under the name DM Ashura; the "DM" stands for Digital Maestro, while "Ashura" (spelled 阿修羅) is Japanese for "fighting demon". He has made a number of remixes (mostly from music games), particularly "neoMAX" (a remix of the MAX series), which won first place in Tournamix 4, a DDR stepfile-writing contest. He has also since written a number of original tracks, and is well known in the music game community for his work.
