A former restaurant General Manager of a four hundred seat full service seafood restaurant, Mr. Robb was at the forefront of the move from simple point-of-sale cash registers to network operation systems in the food service industry and spearheaded the move to using computers in the restaurant for everything from cash registers to databases for managing inventory. Richard Robb, an accomplished computer hobbyist in the early 1980's, united his keen interest of computers with a methodical research into the exploding IT industry and made the move from food service to information technology full time. He worked as a consultant for some time after leaving the restaurant, but when the opportunity arose to instruct, it coupled two things that he loves to do, work with computers and teach. Mr. Robb is a graduate of Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA, with a dual major in Psychology and Economics and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree.
