His first paying job was setting bowling pins in a basement of a church bowling alley for three dollars a night.

His humble roots growing up in Baltimore City and his earnest ability to seek out the best in people allows Bob to easily connect with everyone from literally the homeless man on the street to the Boardroom CEO.
Nationally recognized in the field of insurance and benefits working in the industry for over thirty years, Bob is a highly sought-after speaker and his inspiring and empowering messages have been shared with a diverse list of prominent institutions such as Johns Hopkins University Hospital and PNC Bank.
