BillyBow Aguirre was born in 1961 in Los Angeles, California, to Susanne Carter, an entrepreneur and William F Aguirre Sr., who worked for Pacific Bell Telephone Company. His mother has Spanish, Irish, and Basque ancestry, and his father was from a Basque great family (of French & Spanish origin). Self-described as a "dreamer, BIG Dreams," BillyBow left home at 19 and for the next 13 years worked in the U.S.Navy as a food service cook and traveled to various locales as Japan, Australia, Mexico, Philippines, Africa, Singapore, Thailand and Hawaii. Returning to California at the age of 32, he had some setbacks with his dreams of working in the entertainment industry. But BillyBow continued pressing on with his lifelong dream. After leaving the Navy, he worked in the culinary arts and Information Technology industry at the San Diego Tribune, Deluxe Labs and Jefferies & Company. He bought a camera and shot some of the famous fitness competitors and bodybuilders like Ronnie Coleman, Jay Cutler, Greg Plitt, Iris Kyle, Sherlyn Roy, Stacey Naito, and Christine Le Monde. BillyBow also filmed the professional bodybuilders and fitness competitors at the 2007 Mr. Olympia. BillyBow and his partner (wife) Katherine Aguirre have attended numerous fitness events like the LA Fit Expo and Idea World Fitness Convention where they conducted interviews with the leading innovators in the fitness industry like Elaine LaLanne, David Weck, Tommy Saunders, Marc Lebert, Todd Gates and Maria Kang.
