Rob is the prime architect of Strategy/PM, the first generation banking system that later became the launching pad for Portfolio Plus. He has over three decades of experience in information systems and EDP, having consulted for both government and private sector in a broad cross-section of applications, ranging from banking to manufacturing to artificial intelligence. He has been self-employed and a principal of his own firm for the majority of his career. Rob has fulfilled virtually every role in the software value chain, from programmer to project manager to chief architect.

Here's a link to Rob's induction into the CAAMP Mortgage Hall of Fame. Notice how calmly he handles the technical audio snafus near the beginning. This is grace under pressure.
