Bobby also served for eight years on the faculty at the SF Conservatory of Music, and currently is head teacher at Seydways Studios, Northern California's’s premier acting studio. Bobby has performed at many of the West Coast's best theatres, including Berkeley Rep, ACT, TheatreWorks, Shotgun Players, Center Rep, Marin Theatre Company, et al, and in 1996 was awarded the Dean Goodman Drama-Logue Award for Outstanding Principal Performance in Lady Be Good with 42nd Street Moon. Screen credits include principal roles in many independent feature films, as well as guest appearances on the television shows Nash Bridges and Trauma. Bobby’s direction of Twelfth Night for the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival received critical acclaim, and his Tempest and Taming of the Shrew for the S.F. Shakespeare Festival played to over 50,000 students in more than 60 cities throughout California, followed by an expanded version with a live band and all original music at San Francisco's Gershwin Theatre. He also worked as Associate Director for the long running hit Noises Off at the Marines Memorial Theatre in San Francisco. His latest creative project was recording a series of original jazz and blues compositions released on his CD entitled "New Year's Day" in December 2015.

The best of us need a coach, someone to help us see ourselves. Bobby sees his job as being able to see every actor not only as they are, but as they might be, and then to hold that vision up. This allows performers of all kinds to expand their range by identifying their strengths and then looking at what else they need to develop that they might have overlooked. The goal is to bring each and every person to peak performance by making that invisible potential become a visible reality.
