Published humor book
Published political/economic book
Bob spends considerable time and effort writing books to improve life choices for young men to minimize the pains he personally encountered in his unbridled youth, creating humorous articles about his friends, associates and off-the-wall family, history, politics, business, playing golf, and attending drum & bugle corps contests.
Bob utilized his schooling to design ship's structures in his initial endeavors in the engineering field.
Bob has simultaneously managed multiple IT projects from concept to delivery involved with healthcare (HIV/AIDS and oncology), energy (risk management and commercial operations), accounting, telecommunications, trade show exhibitors, pharmaceutical-microbial contaminants, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO), including development of project estimates, generating the statement of work (SOW), defining budgets, gathering and documenting business requirements, identifying and resolving potential risks and issues, providing status reports to executive management and the client, and preparing change orders modifying the SOW.
Bob has been writing humor for close to 30 years, inspired by the very funny people in his family, who inspired him to take up the mantle to capture hundreds of bizarre tales for posterity. Bob tried his hand at stand-up comedy with mixed results. Perhaps he was too insane even for that culture.
Bob has managed numerous application development projects for both enterprise and open software platforms for both small entities through Fortune 500 companies, ranging from development of estimates to statements of work to project planning to frequent status reports to the client/company executives.
In addition to managing numerous website development projects, Bob has developed significant new additions to a project manager's portfolio of tools utilized to manage projects.
Bob has designed a project manager's checklist, program management office (PMO) checklist, post project survey questionnaire, and business requirements to stakeholder's presentation, which have not previously existed.
Bob has authored two books -- one on the unparalleled growth of government and examples of unacceptable waste -- and the other a primer for young men educating them on the reality of the marriage bed, the dire consequences of divorce, and how to live a very content life as a single man, if so desired.
Bob is currently creating a history of articles that pertain to the very funny but often mentally unbalanced men in his family.
