Born into a family of travelling lounge musicians, Bill's earliest memories were of the vast American West speeding past the windows of various Detroit sedans from the 1960s. He was homeschooled from 4th grade through high school and took his diploma through correspondence back before they called it "distance learning". Bill was writing short stories at the age of nine, producing his father's records and writing songs at fourteen, and working two jobs as well as managing a business at twenty after his father -- onetime bandleader Lloyd LaBrie -- suddenly died. He's a graduate of Thomas More College (Philosophy '94), a certified UNIX admin, a 20-year veteran of Fortune-50 IT departments, a published writer, journalist, poet, and PR flack, a ...more

Bill LaBrie liked a quote
Memoirs, 1925-1950 by George F. Kennan
“The fact is that one moves through life like someone moving with a lantern in a dark woods. A bit of the path ahead is illuminated, and a bit of the path behind. But the darkness follows hard on one’s steps, and envelopes our trails as one proceeds. Were one to be able, as one never is, to retrace the steps by daylight, one would find that the terrain traversed bears, in reality, little relationship to what imagination and memory pictured. We are, toward the end of our lives, such different people, so far removed from the childhood figures with whom our identity links us, that the bond to those figures, like that of nations to their obscure prehistoric origins, is almost irrelevant.”
George F. Kennan
