Born in Taunton Massachusetts, Bob arrived in Colorado in 1992 just 3 days after graduating high school and quickly entered the special events field as Events Manager of the Colorado Springs City Auditorium from 1993-1995. He was then recruited to help open a brand new visitor and nature center showcasing one of Colorado's most beautiful natural landmarks - the Garden of the Gods. After 6 years at the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center, Bob entered the non-profit sector as Community Relations & Events Director for Southern Colorado AIDS Project where he organized black tie events and multi-day fundraisers throughout southern Colorado until 2007, when the tourism industry called him back into service as Vice President of the Go West Summit. Bob's philosophy in life is simple - "Have as much fun as possible, while doing the most good!"
