Honorably Discharged from the U.S. Navy circa 1970, Robert’s rate as Machinist Mate placed him below decks in the boiler room—a strange and extreme mechanical environment he elicits when writing.
As an IBEW Inside Wireman, Robert worked in widely-varied heavy-industrial environments like: coal and soda-ash mines, coal-fired and nuclear-breeder powerhouses.
Attending the University of Colorado, he got a BS in Information Systems and graduated Magna Cum Laude. Certified as an Oracle Master Database Administrator, Unix Systems Administrator, and PMI/PMP (Project Management Professional).
Robert spent many years as Director of Information Services for the County Sheriffs of Colorado. Throughout his professional career, he was also a Technical Writer and Instructor.
Robert’s latest completed work is the Stolen Man Trilogy, a sci-fi/fantasy adventure about dragons, techno-magic, artificial-intelligence (AI), and sorceresses.
Robert says, “I invite you to go along for the ride with me in the worlds of super-smart dragons and high-technology.”
