William Dolan, Manager
Billy, an east coast native, has put down roots here in the Bay Area. At 16, he began an extensive restaurant career, starting as a dishwasher in upstate New York. Moving up in the ranks, Billy found himself in NYC working in fine dining. After relocating to Southern California, he had a brief finance career, but quickly realized a desk job would not suit him. He longed to be in the Bay Area, and decided to make the move. Billy began to work in some of San Francisco’s finest restaurants. It was here he met his GM turned mentor, who guided Billy and connected him with Bounty Hunter. In his spare time, he hangs out with the loves of his life- his husband and their two pups, Dash and Oliver.
