About Bob

I am an seasoned professional with over 40 years experience in business, training, and education. I am a retired Air Force pilot with considerable world travel, which has allowed me to obtain a multitude of technical skills and training. I have started and developed businesses and managed a multi-million dollar retail store with the responsibility for customer service, training, product testing, and most all major business disciplines.

I write training curriculum and examinations for a large national training program. Additionally, I am required to write and edit student and instructor guides for use in conjunction with on-line computer based lessons. My broad range of experience and education allows me to enjoy working with students of all ages, but especially adult learners.

As an avid woodworker, I enjoy being creative with fine wood projects such as furniture and crafts. I would rather be outdoors than in and enjoy boating and fishing as well as practicing wildlife and landscape photography.

I am an experienced educator and would enjoy sharing my experiences and working with you to achieve your goals.
