Before coming to Boise State University, Bob’s experiences consisted of research, creative, and business roles in the computer industry (DELL and HP) and the film/TV industry (Disney, FOX, Paramount and Warner Bros. – among others). From ‘Onset’ experiences that include working behind and in front of the camera in Hollywood, to the production offices at some of the largest studios that dot the landscape of Southern California — Bob has a valuable perspective to share. He received his undergraduate degree from California State University–Northridge in Radio/TV-Film, with an emphasis in Multimedia Management. A graduate of OPWL (Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning) at Boise State University, his master’s degree in Instructional and Performance Technology focused on online learning, instructional design, and aspects of Universal Design for Learning.

His personal interests include spending time with the ones he loves, as the coach for his daughter’s soccer team to guided fishing tours with his father. When at home he can be found grilling or gardening with his wife, daughter and their extended family. Ask anyone who knows and they will tell you that a description of Bob would not be complete without mentioning his enthusiasm for film and all things Disney.
