Bob’s career has morphed between two seemingly diametric paths. On one hand, Bob has spent 30 years in the serious IT business. On the other hand, although his eccentric lifestyle is mainly supported by his income from IT, his true love has always been in writing devilish and sarcastic humor, an alternate reality to the straight-and-narrow world of engineering and computers.

On the IT home front, Bob has been involved in software projects ranging from the mundane to the very challenging for clients ranging from startups on up to Fortune 500 companies. Bob has fulfilled the majority of the roles in IT development including project manager, business analyst, quality assurance analyst, technical writer, and general “fill in guy” to satisfy the ever-evolving twists and turns of the computer world. All of these roles require considerable research and a finely-tuned client-facing writing style.

When Bob is really on a roll, he has found thousands of topics whereby he could employ his deliciously devious pen to rip apart whatever titillating topic he has chosen to attack for the day. His writings as a divorced man include a sarcastic book entitled “The lounge Lizard’s Guide to Marriage and Divorce.” This book is a primer for men between 21 and 40 that provides guidance to these men on the reality of the potential marriage snake pit, the horrors of divorce, and whether most men would be better off staying single for their entire lives.

Bob is currently creating a treasure trove of articles on his bizarre family that documents the numerous contributions of superb humor offered up by many of the crazed loonies in his family. In comparison to his own family, the Addams Family gives off the hue of traditional Midwestern values. Three of the male members of his family could easily pass for Fester, Lurch, and Cousin Itt, with their brains saturated with massive quantities of alcohol. In fact, his sister named the bizarre threesome the “Three Stooges” to provide an appropriate moniker to accurately depict their lunacy.
