Founder and CEO of Boerg Industries, a tech company that makes cutting edge smartphones (The latest being the Boerg 4gen), Bill is obsessed with connectivity and the possibility that through our dreams we can connect directly into each other’s psyches -- “Cerebral cortex to cerebral cortex.” For years, Bill has funded dream research through an R&D arm of his corporation. When he comes across Tess (with her powerful dreams), Bill offers to help her prove her son actually exists if in return she will participate in his research.
