Bill Cook

Bill Cook has been in the optical industry for more than 40 years. He retired from the Navy as a Chief Opticalman and went on to a varied career in the optical industry. He recently retired from Captain’s Nautical Supply in Seattle which carried and serviced a broad range of optical equipment. He is committed to helping the consumer make sense of the complexities of binoculars and finding the right pair for each person. Also, Russ Steele, the Seattle Audubon Nature Shop Manager since 1998, will be presenting.  He has spent his life (literally – since the age of seven) in specialty retail selling technical products, delighting in helping customers.
