It all started one day in June of 1979, William Joseph Petz was born. I have two brothers (Billy & Michael) and one sister (Debbie).
I have lived in NYC, Queens for my entire life. I attended grammar school & Junior High School here as well. My teachers noticed that “William is very creative and works well with others”, which is how I ended up majoring in art in JHS to finally study 4 years of architecture @ Art and design HS in Manhattan. Did I continue with art? No… couldn’t afford to attend Syracuse University, which I was accepted to. This ended me up in Baruch College not knowing what to major in, but having my first computer for a few months and not getting off it, the logical major was CIS – Computer Information Systems.
During high school, I managed three jobs (Board of Education, Saxony Inc., and CVS/Pharmacy). I also was captain of my bowling team and second doubles on the handball team. Not to mention VP of the National Honor Art Society.
Throughout my years at Baruch, I obtained positions at J.P Morgan and PricewaterhouseCoopers working in the technology field. After graduating I started work as a system administrator at Lehman Brothers. After the fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008, I moved to Merrill Lynch, Bank of America and then Nomura. In 2009 I started my own company called Random Events. In just one year over 3000 members signed up.
