Introduction

  • Editor with over 20 experience ranging from the automotive industry to consumer technology.

Experience

Having started his career in 1996 to help to help launch The Mining Company, a major internet company that was the predecessor to About.com, Bob has continued to focus all his energy on ensuring all the content he touches puts the reader above all other factors.

Prior to editing content on Lifewire, Bob held various roles at About.com as it turned from a small start up to a major destination site. He also wrote About.com's flagship daily newsletter for several years which went to over one million readers.

In his spare time, Bob started up an irreverent website that poked fun at the automotive industry.

My Gear

I'm using the 2020 M1 Mac mini hooked up to a 4K external monitor. I have an iPhone 12 mini (in that sweet green) because, come on, these phones are all too big. My most beloved device, however, is my 11" 2018 iPad Pro. It's the near perfect computer for most of the things I do most of the time. Oh, I have a lot of clicky keyboards that range from loud and obnoxious to louder and even more obnoxious. They use Gateron key switches and... Hey, where are you going?

Education

Bob graduated with an undergraduate degree in Journalism from The College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College).
