Personal & Contact Information

Personal Information:

Bob spent his childhood in Pasadena, CA, and lived for many years in Hollywood. While still in college, he founded Artisan Sound Recorders, which became one of the country's most respected record mastering companies.

He purchased his first computer in 1973 to do bookkeeping chores for the company. It was about the size of a grand piano and had less processing power than the average child's toy today. But it did what it was purchased to do, and started his ongoing interest in computers.

After owning Artisan for over twenty years, he sold it in 1979, just as the recording industry was transitioning to CD's. He then moved to Santa Barbara and pursued his current career working with computers.

In recent years, most of his computer work has been designing and hosting websites. But the majority of his time is now devoted to doing administrative work for his wife's consulting business.
