About

What better way to greet you than in my native tongue. My name is Ratu William Chesser Rasari Racule but you can call me Billy or if I’m in trouble ... William.

My passion for design and technology runs as deep as my passion for my culture and life. I migrated from the depths of the South Pacific to the Heartland of America. My motivation is my family. An energetic little boy and precious little girl and a beautiful, awesome, supportive amazing wife.

I bring with me diversity and an original way of approaching design. I have 6 years of experience in the design industry, many more in fine arts. I am fortunate to be able to do what I love as work. My passion for technology and its ever changing ways keeps me on my toes in finding new and efficient avenues to approach design. Ilove to design and also to dabble in the development of projects whether it may be a simple UI/UX front-end development or a colaboration of ideas with developers.

If I am not designing or working on a project, I am either playing Rugby or spending my most precious time with my greatest achievement and creation of all time, my little family. I am always looking for opportunities to better myself and my work and mesh with those who share the same values and passion as I do. Check out my portfolio to see some of my most recent projects and doodlings.
