Beginning at age twelve, I spent my summers and weekends working with my dad, a general contractor, building homes and buildings. I contracted my first home at age nineteen and built my own home by age twenty. For more than 30 years I have operated one-person businesses.Bill Benitez Twelve years of my life were spent working for local government administering federally-assisted housing programs. I started as an inspector with a three month assignment and was Director of Community Improvement with 78 employees when I resigned over twelve years later to do writing and consulting.

Writing, Publishing and Consulting – Rehab Notes Library was my first publishing company and specialized in housing related topics. We published a monthly newsletter (Rehab Notes) with subscribers in all 50 states, Canada and England. I also did consulting and public speaking for agencies and organizations in cities across the country. I also wrote and published eight guidebooks on the subject of housing rehabilitation. After that, I took advantage of my construction experience and started a handyman and woodworking business.

Over Twenty Years of Woodworking – For over twenty years, first in Tampa, Florida and then in Austin, Texas, I built hundreds of small and large projects for individuals, companies and government agencies. During these years I began writing books about my experiences.

Computer Experience – My computer experience dates back more than twelve years and began in response to poor technical support for our computer.   I used home study to acquire A+ and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer Certifications.

More Writing, Publishing, and Web Design – Over the past twenty years I have been writing about woodworking and in 2007 I started Positive Imaging, my new publishing company, to take advantage of modern self publishing methods. I as of 2009 I had published five books that can be checked out on my web site at: http://positive-imaging.com .

I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida and moved to Austin, Texas in 1986, where I now live with my wife, Barbara Frances. We have three adult children and eight grandchildren.
