Inked Awards Honors Bill Snyder

LOS ANGELES — Bill Snyder, aka Bill The Hobbyist, started in the adult industry more than 30 years ago when movies were still released on VHS. He started off by writing reviews on movies, strip clubs, and more, for a local Philly publication.

Over the years he has met and interviewed many porn stars, with his first being Kandi Barbour in 1984. When Inked Angels started their review section, Bill saw the challenge and met it head on.

Excited for the opportunity, he got the DVD review section and format built into what it is today. In addition, he has also taken on the position of Event Coordinator, where he has organized the upcoming 2015 Inked Awards. At this year's Inked Awards, Bill will be honored by having the annual Achievement Award renamed to the "Bill Snyder Achievement Award." Past winners of this award include Taboo Toys (RVA), Joanna Angel, and Evil Angel.

“I am excited and even more honored than I ever have been in all my years around this great industry,” Snyder said.

"Bill has been an important part of Inked Angels and growing it to what it is today," said Inked Angels owner Jason Jones. "He got our DVD review section off the ground and put together an awesome review format, possibly the best around. We wouldn't be where we are today without him."

The 2015 Inked Awards are scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 in Edison, N.J. at the Hilton Garden Inn. Hosts for this year's event will be Karmen Karma and Draven Star, with trophy girls Catherine Tayler and Cali Carter. For more information on the Inked Awards, click here.
