Bob grew up wanting to be a gangster.  His dream as a child was to die in the electric chair like James Cagney did in Angels With Dirty Faces But, after spending much of his teenage years taking unwanted vacations in undesirable locales, and the demise of someone he looked up to as a role model (even though he was an ex-con, junkie, drug dealer), he came to his senses (at 19) that being an actor might be a better route to take in life, with the possibility of living a longer life & to have more control of where he lived and how long he lived there.  He also realized he could play the bad guy and not get into trouble doing it.  So, he played them on stage, TV and in film, including a variety of many different types of roles.  He loves to become other people and the stage is his preference.  He’s appeared in 82 plays.  He idolized Marlon Brando, studied with Stella Adler for 4 years, Harold Clurman, Corey Allen, Lurene Tuttle and his mentor Gabe Dell.  He’s written several plays for himself that have been produced at such venues as The Colony Studio Theatre, The Victory Theatre, Palm Springs One-Act Festival, The Met Theatre & Theatre East. He’s an award winning Actor, Writer, Poet & Photographer.  He’s adapted one of his plays, Are You Lonesome Tonight? to a screenplay (he plays the title role of Elvis) and adapted his one-act play, Stuck into an award winning short film directed by Bruce A. Block,  which is currently screening in film festivals worldwide.  He has several upcoming projects in the works, in which he will be producing, writing & acting in. 

He is inspired by his late wife Adelaide Nimitz-Factor and dedicates his work to her memory.
