Bob has been in the visual and performing arts for over 50 years. He began classical voice training at age 11, and his high school summers were spent at Interlochen National Music Camp and in professional summer stock musicals in the Midwest and on the East Coast, working with such choreographers as Helen Tamiris and Wakefield Poole. While in high school, he coproduced two seasons of classic plays broadcast by Pacifica Radio and appeared in theatre productions at Wayne State University and the Vanguard Theatre.

He continued performing after moving to Manhattan at 17, and later worked in textile design, graphic design and publishing, also authoring several books. Along the way, he was a muralist and studied printmaking at Pratt Institute, as well as playwriting with Harvey Perr, dance with Kai Takei and Eiko & Koma, and acting with Arthur Storch and Maria Piscator.

He produced and directed and choreographed off-off-Broadway, and studied feature film production at The New School, also working in the early days of independent video production. He assisted production designer Richard MacDonald on a major Hollywood feature and later studied under production designer Harry Lange.

“The Marquise Project” is his first feature film.
