My name is Bob; Flashy Software Consultant by Day, Caffeinated Code Monkey by Night. The sole owner, proprietor, and employee at Bob Jobs, LLC. A motivated family man, punk rocker, programmer, entrepreneur, computer scientist, cook, video game designer, and lover of some things nerdy. Have been known to party from time to time.
I program because I love doing it. I have a knack for turning written forms and spreadsheets into streamlined applications with a central database and a clean user interface. I also enjoy writing efficient, well-documented, and creative code. I hope to further develop my interface design and data management skills, but already have a solid foundation on which to build these talents. I believe good software enables people to do better work in less time.
I also dabble in Full Stack Development with LAMP and .NET implementations, Windows Game Development, and Database Design. I am majoring in Software Engineering and Computer Science at Park University. I have just ended an internship at Keypath Education and am now looking for entry-level work in programming or a related IT field. Someday, I hope to be designing Expert Systems, Simulations, Commercial Games, or other Artificial Intelligence applications.
I love my family and riding my scooter around the Kansas City. Once my son is older, I look forward to letting him ride with me… but I think his mother disagrees. We all live in a small house in Kansas City, Kansas, which I bought in June of 2015. We listen to a lot of punk rock and watch a lot of anime in our house. There’s this cat that lives there too, but she is a jerk.
Pizzas, pastas, and casseroles are my favorite things to cook. I have yet to code any games other than simple puzzles and action games at this point, but my pet project is an action RPG I’ve been working on for years. My favorite anime is One Piece, but I also enjoy Dragonball, Deathnote, and Great Teacher Onizuka. Some of my favorite bands are Lower Class Brats, Ponx Attax, The Stitches, and Cobra.
I am a pretty laid back guy, confident in my skills, and grateful for my friends and family. If you would like to learn more about me, check out my Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
A website for the local Food Not Bombs chapter in Kansas City. They serve free hot meals and distribute groceries and clothing to anyone in need every Sunday. This site utilizes the Google Maps API and a PHP contact form, as well as some moderate CSS3 for a simple, clean layout.

A demo done in WordPress. A simple layout I only changed by hardcoding social media icons. The icons are by Guilherme Lima. The theme is Twenty Twelve, a default WordPress theme.

My first .NET project, done as a semester project for Web Programming II. Each week, we completed an assignment which added functionality to the site. Some links are intentionally left broken to display custom error messages. This site was done with ASP.NET, Microsoft SQL, C#, and a little Ajax.
One of the more complicated things I’ve written in C#. The collision detection, the auto-tiling, and physics are meant to mimic The Legend of Zelda. Source code included.
Note: To run this game, you will need to install the XNA Run Time. Just unzip the file, and run “xnafx40_redist.msi”. Then, run “WindowsGame1.exe”. Move with the arrow keys.

This is one of my older projects: A website for a local pizzeria. Done entirely with HTML5, CSS3, and a little PHP and MySQL on the back end.
