In the mid and late 1970's and early 1980's Bob was also a retail dive store assistant manager and general manager at a popular Cozumel resort.

Currently, Bob is the Instructional Design and Development Executive for DSAT - Diving Science and Technology. DSAT is the engineering arm of PADI.

Recreationally, Bob is an avid underwater videographer and still photographer. His passion is capturing animal behavior and the thrill of scuba diving. In the early 1970’s Bob was one of the first to document the amazing reefs under Southern California’s offshore oil platforms. Today he is an advocate for keeping them in place for divers to enjoy once they are decommissioned.
