Bill Kendrick first lived in Davis from 1998 to 2004. In that time, he helped co-found and run the Linux Users' Group of Davis, founded and ran the short-lived Davis Game Design Club. He moved to the Bay Area for a while, and returned in 2007 after his son, William, was born. He can often be found chasing William around the Davis Food Co-Op, Alphabet Moon, and Mishka's.

Along with his day job (currently the CTO of Smashwords) and being a parent, he also writes open source software (most notably, Tux Paint).
