Bob has been working in the Intelligence Community since 1990 after graduating from Cornell University with a BS in Applied and Engineering Physics.

In 1991, Bob was selected for the RSE Program, a four-year rotational program which took him to several field locations and gave him a broad understanding of the intelligence mission. He also earned his MS in Electrical Engineering from Johns Hopkins in 1996.

In 2000, Bob joined ACT (Atlantic Coast Telesys — later sold to SAIC), working on large programs and performing R&D on internally developed GPS projects. Bob was named CTO of a spinoff company, ACT Solutions, in 2002 where he sold and developed a Weblogic portal solution for network security company Trustwave.

In 2003, Bob joined Trustwave full-time, where he was the lead developer, building network security scanners to implement Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirements. In 2008, Bob returned to the intelligence community providing consulting services to Ideas-2-Solutions and working on contracts for ICCI / KEYW.

Bob formed BrainTrust Holdings in 2008.
