Here is a bit about me, a good overview of my skills and experience in both writing and accounting:
Rob started writing in second grade when an ambitious teacher taught the class to make books using cardboard, wallpaper, thread and needle. He was applauded for his sense of plot, character development and conflict resolution. Rob believes creativity is innate, something that can be developed but never taught. He has published in The Boston Globe, Reno Gazette-Journal, and San Diego Reader, to name a few.
Rob was awarded Story of the Year by the Nevada Press Association for a four-part investigative series concerning affordable housing at Lake Tahoe. He has written and voiced radio commercials for Live 105 in San Francisco; and has also written and recorded music and lyrics and performed at CBGB.
Rob has a B.S. in print journalism from Northeastern University in Boston, Ma. He has worked as a sales executive for Fortune 500 companies in advertising, technology and resort hospitality and produced numerous marketing pieces for business and consumer sales.
With a consummate thirst for knowledge, he recently completed two certificates in accounting (“controller” and “financial analysts” specializations) from University of California, Berkeley — both earned with distinction. He is currently studying for the CPA exam.
He resides in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco where he is steadfastly at work on Powder Hound, a crime thriller set at Lake Tahoe. He reads voraciously and loves music, the outdoors, food, craft beer, people and pets.
His plans include sailing the Mediterranean Islands to lap up the sunshine and swim in the serene, turquoise water while traveling from port to port sampling the culture and cuisine, perhaps serving inspiration for his second novel, Santorini by Sunrise.
