About Bill Spring

Bill Spring is a graduate of Syracuse University’s Newhouse School. In his eclectic and not-very-lucrative career, he has been a cartoonist, actor, standup comic, graphic designer, script and novel analyst, Hollywood punch-up writer, and stay-at-home father. For the past ten years he has been the head writer and senior editor of the PBS Kids website “It’s My Life.” He lives in New Paltz, NY with his wife Jennifer Castle and their two daughters. His fondest wish is to be an unappreciated, alcoholic poet living in a drafty cottage in England’s Lake District.
