If fact, the name "Robert" was the third most popular name for boys born in the 1950's. Times, however, have changed. In the year 2015, the name "Robert" came in number 63, behind such names as Hunter, Colton, and Brayden! Can you imagine?

Growing up in Hollywood was great. My father's work as an actor and theater owner sparked my imagination and my mother instilled in me a great appreciation for music.
Growing tired of the industry changes, airline mergers and bankruptcies, I left the travel world and drew upon my musical talents to become a music editor for film and television.
For more on what I do and what shows I've worked on, see my Music Editing page.
I left the music editing world in 2002 to devote my time to the field of Emergency Management. This is a growing field that was once only concerned with natural disasters. Today, it's a much more complicated world. I manage emergency and disaster planning, train volunteer responders, and respond to and manage emergencies. If you want to learn CPR or how to search for victims in a damaged building, I can show you how it's done!Unlike the trainer who helps you learn new software or how to operate a machine process, it's somewhat odd, I suppose, to spend time and effort training employees in skills we hope they never have to use. To learn more about emergency management, see the Emergency Management page.
