Hey, I'm Bob. I've been a member of the working class my whole life. I was born at Charity Hospital, grew up & attended public schools in Old Jefferson, and graduated from Riverdale High School. Both my wife and my mom were special education teachers at public schools & instilled the importance of public education in Bob's life. I currently live in Bulbancha with my wife, kids, and dog in Lakeview.
I studied Computer Science at Tulane University and the University of Missouri-Columbia. For over 13 years I sold my labor as a software developer, and I'm currently a technical project manager. I've been a leader of teams of workers in New Orleans and remotely around the world, and I've honed my skills in solving complex problems with workers and stakeholders to get to the root of an issue, discover the causes, and work towards finding & implementing solutions.
I love spreading joy by performing in community theater, improv comedy, and stand-up comedy shows around the region. I was featured on The Gambit's list of Best Comedians and was nominated for a Big Easy Award. I've hosted charity events and fundraisers and have produced a number of comedy shows including Big Easy Live. Since the birth of my first child, I've done neighborhood theater with performances in Wizard of Oz at my church St. Luke's UMC and in Hocus Pocus in my front yard on Halloween for the neighborhood.
I'm a member of my local neighborhood association, numerous local organizations, and volunteers on a number of local campaigns.
I'm a socialist, pro-choice, I know all Black Lives Matter, and I'm an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, a Green New Deal, and universal health care.
Here are some community organizing projects, campaigns, and coalitions I have been a part of:
