Bob grew up in Northwest Indiana, just outside of Chicago. His first job was helping to maintain the grounds at his church and mowed for City of Dyer public works during his college years.

In 2013, Bob and his family took an opportunity to relocate to New Bern working with US Cellular. Bob graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business from Franklin Pierce University in 2019. He has always had a passion for the outdoors and helping people. Bob joined the team at Atlantic Coast Landscape in the Spring of 2019 giving him the opportunity to combine those passions with his background in retail sales, leadership, and networking. 

Outside of work, Bob sits on several boards including his local HOA, the local chapter of the Lions Club, the North Carolina Lions Inc Foundation, and enjoys volunteering with many community events around New Bern such as the New Bern Ghost Walk and Beary Merry Christmas.
