IPMS Fort Crook, in conjunction with the Facebook group Klingon Arts & Engineering, are proud to announce the the O Comic Con Model Contest, 2017. Us proud band of glue sniffing, paint throwing, plastic professors are out to give you a nice display, and encourage you to join in with our annual model contest, in our continuing quest to make boxes of plastic parts into something recognizable to the general population (or ask us questions if you don’t). The theme for this year will be Battlestar Galactica, both the original series and the Sci Fi Channel remake. The rules are simple…..

Categories
  1. Alpha- Starships, Aircraft and Vehicles
  2. Bravo- Figures & Gundams
  3. Charlie- Everything Else (Dioramas, Weapons, etc.)
  4. Cadets- Juniors

There are also two special awards: the Judges Choice and the second, the People’s Choice (more on that later)

Registration & Judging Hours
  • All day Friday (12:00 PM to 8:00 PM) & Saturday (9:00 AM to 8:00 PM). Sunday from opening (9:00 AM) until 11:00 AM
  • Judging will be 12:00 to 2:00 on Sunday.
  • Awards to be presented at about 2:30 on Sunday.
  • Winner, or representative needs to be present for the awards


Guidelines
  • Contest will be open to all, but Cadet’s category is only for 17 & under; however, if a Junior thinks that he can compete in one of the other three categories, they will be permitted to do so. Judges will be allowed to compete, but will not be allowed to judge in the categories that they have entered.
  • Group or Organizational entries are accepted under one of the first three categories. (In other words, if a cosplay group wants to enter under their group name, they are welcome to do so.)
  • No fee to enter and entries are unlimited.
  • Judging criteria will the following from most important to least…..Construction, Finish, Weathering, Extra work (aftermarket, scratchbuilding, etc.) & Accuracy.

No pre-constructed toys straight out of the box, or with minor work or just repainting will be allowed. For re-worked toys, documentation of the work done, such as pictures, is reccomended.  For 1/1 scale props (weapons), only re-worked toys, model kits or scratchbuilt weapons and equipment will be accepted.
  • There will be a NO SWEEPS rule (winner cannot place more than once in a single category)
  • Judges decisions are final and cannot be changed or nullified once awarded (so all bribes have to be paid in full by Sunday morning……just joking).

The People’s Choice Award

The People’s Choice Award (known this year as the “So Say We All” Award) is unique, in which EVERYBODY has a vote on their favorite model. We had over 250 votes last year, and I encourage EVERYBODY at O Comic Con to stop in a cast a vote for this year. People’s choice balloting will begin on Saturday at around noon and will last until 11 AM on Sunday. The winner will be awarded during the awards ceremony on Sunday at 2:30.

For people that are interested in scale plastic modeling, or if you have questions, one of us styrene know-it-alls will be happy to speak with you, answer your questions, and give you suggestions on how to improve your skills.

So, get off your fracking butts and build something….anything…and bring it in!

BTW, IPMS Fort Crook is also sponsoring the world’s largest model contest, model shop and convention, for three days, later on in July. We will have more details or go to IPMS Fort Crook!

Rob Paulsen Q&A
This moderated Q&A panel with media guest Rob Paulsen is free and open to all O Comic Con Friday attendees! Born in Detroit, Rob Paulsen spent his childhood in Livonia and Rochester, attending Junior and Senior high school in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Rob loved cartoons like most kids but aspired to be a professional hockey player. “Fortunately, thanks to some big, strong, kid from Winnipeg who drilled me so hard my ears are still ringing, I learned around age 18 I had neither the talent nor the temperament to make a living playing hockey. So, I turned to my other passions: singing and acting.”

The goal of bringing absolute believability to a fictional character, live-action or animated, is what every actor strives for. Those who are committed to their career and who combine experience, passion and skill are likely to succeed.

Those gifted with exceptional talent who focus on maximizing their potential by finding their own niche, quickly break away from the pack. After years of honing their craft and consistently delivering memorable performances in which the character impacts an indelible image on the viewer, the public and the industry take notice, singling out the best.

“I’m getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the 7th grade,” jests Rob, who won a Daytime Emmy in 1999 as “Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program” for Pinky and The Brain (Warner Bros.) Though nominated twice previously, the victory was especially sweet due to some formidable competition – fellow nominees Louie Anderson, Ernest Borgnine, Dennis Franz and Jeffery Tambor. In addition to his Emmy, Rob won back-to-back Annie Awards in 1997 and 1998. “I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for twenty-five years of full-time employment in this business,” he says.

“It’s a treat to portray a complex character,” Rob explains about Pinky, a goof-ball mouse with funny teeth, a head filled with clouds and an inane imagination that is punctuated with a staccato laugh. “Besides … where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like ‘Egad!,’ ‘Narf!,’ ‘Poit!,’ ‘Splonk!,’ and ‘Zort!’ are allowed and in fact, encouraged?” With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Rob’s versatility shines in his starring roles as the voices of Yakko, Pinky and Dr. Scratch ‘n’ Sniff in the Peabody and two-time Emmy award-winning series “Animaniacs.”

Some of Rob’s other well-known animated characters include Raphael of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Arthur in “The Tick,” the title role in “The Mask” (for a WHOLE lot less dough than Mr. Carrey, thank you), the title role in “Mighty Max,” Carl Wheezer in “Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius,” Jack Fenton in “Danny Phantom,” Bobble in the “Tinkerbell” series of DVDs and hopefully more to come.

Paulsen’s extensive credits include on-camera roles in numerous motion pictures including Body Double, Stewardess School, Eyes of Fire, The Perfect Match, and Warlocked. His television acting credits include guest-starring roles on MacGyver and St. Elsewhere. Additionally, he is one of the most sought-after voice actors in the commercial arena, performing in over 1000 of commercial spots.

As passionate about “paying it forward” as he is about his lucrative career, Rob supports various charitable organizations, particularly those benefiting children and military veterans. Rob’s volunteer work with GOALmodels has been particularly rewarding. GOALmodels, a high school program in Reseda, California, is designed to inspire 9th graders to set goals and overcome obstacles in life. Blending his life experiences with passion for his work, his presentations are informative, entertaining and inspiring. In his leisure time, Rob enjoys golf, riding his motorcycle and occasionally lacing up his skates for another chance to relive his past glory on the rink. He spends the majority of his free time with his wife, Parrish, and their two Yorkshire terriers, Pooshie and Tala.

Science Fiction's Take on the Paranormal
This panel will be a discussion on various aspects of the paranormal and how science fiction appropriates the paranormal in various movies and television programs.
The paranormal is widely portrayed in science fiction, with the force ghosts of Star Wars and the vampire clouds of Star Trek being two very obvious examples we can discuss in relation to actual reported paranormal phenomena.
Discussion will also include a concept known as the 'Singularity', or the eventual ability for humans to upload their consciousness to an immortal and intangible virtual existence. Using this concept, one can make a comparison with science fiction's depictions of human interaction with uploaded minds and reported contact with ghosts and messages from the other side.

Leary has also had roles in HBO’s The Comeback, NBC’s Passions, and the GLAAD media award nominated Los Beltran.

Deryl Skelton Q&A
Stop by and ask creator guest Deryl Skelton about his career in cartooning and comics! Writer and illustrator Deryl Skelton has spent four decades illustrating the heck out of everything from the cast of TV’s “Dallas” to the crew of the USS Enterprise to dozens of characters in Marvel and DC comic books, as well as in newspapers, ads and – yes – the ceiling above Donald Trump’s bed. That was not a joke.

This year marks the 44th anniversary of Deryl’s professional life as an artist. After several years of working on a local strip, Skelton drew the Dallas comic strip for the LA Times Syndicate. At Marvel, he worked on virtually every character from the Avengers to the X-Men. Deryl moved to DC when offered the job of bringing to comic book life the crew of the USS Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He happily served there, with occasional forays into other strips like Wonder Woman, until DC’s contract with Star Trek‘s parent company ended.

Jonathan Lipnicki Q&A
This moderated Q&A panel with media guest Jonathan Lipnicki is free and open to all O Comic Con Friday attendees! Jonathan William Lipnicki has been a serious actor since his award-winning breakout role at the age of six in the Academy Award® nominated Jerry Maguire. Following the success of Jerry Maguire, Lipnicki took on leading roles in a string of other hit movies, including The Little Vampire, Like Mike and both Stuart Little films, as well as gathering numerous TV credits, perhaps most notably in The Jeff Foxworthy Show, Meego and popular teen-drama Dawson’s Creek.

After dedicating his time to a number of independent films – particularly impressing critics in the coming-of-age drama When Zachary Beaver Came to Town – and taking time out for school, Lipnicki focused on live theater, with roles in the Tony Award nominated The Lieutenant of Inishmore and Eric Edwards’ A Mixed Tape, as well as taking on guest spots on top TV shows such as Family Guy and Monk.

2012 saw the release of three movies – For the Love of Money, the true story of an Israeli immigrant searching for his piece of the American dream; Edge of Salvation, a documentary-style movie following the downward spiral of a family on the verge of losing everything; and Lipnicki’s first project as executive producer, Broken Roads. Lipnicki returned to the stage in acclaimed writer John Pollono’s Lost Girls at L.A.’s Rogue Machine Theatre; as well as shooting Tag, a dark indie film about a group of teenagers living in a homeless shelter; Beast of the Bering Sea, a Syfy channel exclusive; and Bad Ass 2: Bad Asses with Danny Trejo and Danny Glover.

Alison Arngrim Q&A Session
This is a moderated question and answer session with media guest Alison Arngrim. This Q&A session is free and open to all O Comic Con Saturday attendees!

Alison Arngrim, best known to viewers world-wide for her portrayal of the incredibly nasty “Nellie Oleson” on the much loved, long running hit television series “Little House On The Prairie,” continues to amuse audiences through her many film, television and stage appearances. She can currently be seen in the independent films “For the Love of May” with Ru Paul and Patricia Neal, and “The Last Place On Earth” with Billy Dee Williams and Phyllis Diller. She recently began her foray into French cinema with the role of “Edith” in the French detective comedy, Jean Pierre Mocky’s “Le Deal”.
In addition to her seven years on “Little House,” Alison guest starred on “The Love Boat,” “Fantasy Island” and the NBC movie of the week, “I Married Wyatt Earp,” starring Marie Osmond. She mocked her own status as an “ex-child star” on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, during their month long parody, “Hollywood Survivor” and continues to be a frequent interview subject on “A&E”, “E! Entertainment”, “TV Land” and “VH-1”, to CNN and the Travel Channel.
Alison’s stage work includes, “Sirena: Queen of the Tango”, “Butterflies Are Free,” “Hidden In The Laughter”, “Dear Brutus,” “The Wool Gatherer,” “Cry Of Players”, the French bedroom farce, “In One Bed And Out The Other,” Michael Kearns’ “AIDS/US II,” and the role of “Rita” in the 2005 GLAAD Award nominated production of “Last Summer At Bluefish Cove.” Most recently she starred at the ACME Comedy Theatre in the Ovation Award Nominated musical-drama, “Flirting with Morty” as the abusive, trashy and tragic Ray Lee.
As a stand-up comedian, Alison has headlined at nightclubs such as the Laugh Factory, the Comedy Store and the Improv in Los Angeles; as well as the Cutting Room in New York and assorted comedy venues all across the United States and Canada.
Her one woman show “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch”, which started at Club Fez in New York, has now become a world-wide phenomenon, having been performed to packed houses in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Maui and the south of France, where Alison performed entirely in French to a standing room only crowd at the “Palais des Congres” in her all French version titled: “Confessions d’une Garce de La Prairie”!
In 1986 when her friend and “Little House” husband co-star, Steve Tracy, passed away due to complications of HIV/AIDS, Alison immediately began volunteering at AIDS Project Los Angeles. Her duties have ranged from working on the Southern California AIDS Hotline and the APLA food bank, (APLA’s Necessities of Life Program) to chairing the steering committee of the volunteer speakers bureau and developing “Safer Sex” workshops. She has provided AIDS education to doctors, nurses, prison inmates, service clubs, churches, department stores and schools, and spent seven years hosting the APLA educational cable television show, “AIDS Vision”. In 1992, Joel Wachs presented Alison with a resolution by the Los Angeles City Council commending her on her work on behalf of people living with HIV and AIDS. She continues to serve on the Ambassador Council of AIDS Project Los Angeles.
From 1989 through 1993 she served as Program Manager at Tuesday’s Child, an organization assisting children and families affected by HIV and AIDS. From 1989 through 2003 she served as both hostess and producer for the comedy stage at the AIDS Project Los Angeles Annual Summer Party, (on the backlot of Universal Studios), where through an evening of raucous entertainment, featuring name comedians, she helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for people living with HIV.
She currently serves on the National Advisory Board of The National Association to Protect Children (www.PROTECT.org), fighting to give children a legal and political voice in the war against child abuse. As an activist for the improvement of child protection laws, she has spoken before the California Senate and worked on legislative and political campaigns in several states, including Virginia and New York.
She has appeared on numerous television news programs discussing the legal and political issues surrounding child abuse and molestation, including Larry King Live, Nancy Grace, CNN’s Showbiz Tonight, The Insider, Court TV and Bill O’Reilly’s The Factor.
Alison currently lives in the wilds of Tujunga with her husband, musician Bob Schoonover, (from the rock and roll band “Catahoula”) and their two cats, Hannibal and Clarice. She takes pride in the fact that so many people enjoyed hating her as a girl and is more than happy to give them the opportunity to do so in the future.

Rob Paulsen Q&A Session
This moderated Q&A panel with media guest Rob Paulsen is free and open to all O Comic Con Saturday attendees! Born in Detroit, Rob Paulsen spent his childhood in Livonia and Rochester, attending Junior and Senior high school in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Rob loved cartoons like most kids but aspired to be a professional hockey player. “Fortunately, thanks to some big, strong, kid from Winnipeg who drilled me so hard my ears are still ringing, I learned around age 18 I had neither the talent nor the temperament to make a living playing hockey. So, I turned to my other passions: singing and acting.”

The goal of bringing absolute believability to a fictional character, live-action or animated, is what every actor strives for. Those who are committed to their career and who combine experience, passion and skill are likely to succeed.

Those gifted with exceptional talent who focus on maximizing their potential by finding their own niche, quickly break away from the pack. After years of honing their craft and consistently delivering memorable performances in which the character impacts an indelible image on the viewer, the public and the industry take notice, singling out the best.

“I’m getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the 7th grade,” jests Rob, who won a Daytime Emmy in 1999 as “Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program” for Pinky and The Brain (Warner Bros.) Though nominated twice previously, the victory was especially sweet due to some formidable competition – fellow nominees Louie Anderson, Ernest Borgnine, Dennis Franz and Jeffery Tambor. In addition to his Emmy, Rob won back-to-back Annie Awards in 1997 and 1998. “I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for twenty-five years of full-time employment in this business,” he says.

“It’s a treat to portray a complex character,” Rob explains about Pinky, a goof-ball mouse with funny teeth, a head filled with clouds and an inane imagination that is punctuated with a staccato laugh. “Besides … where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like ‘Egad!,’ ‘Narf!,’ ‘Poit!,’ ‘Splonk!,’ and ‘Zort!’ are allowed and in fact, encouraged?” With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Rob’s versatility shines in his starring roles as the voices of Yakko, Pinky and Dr. Scratch ‘n’ Sniff in the Peabody and two-time Emmy award-winning series “Animaniacs.”

Some of Rob’s other well-known animated characters include Raphael of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Arthur in “The Tick,” the title role in “The Mask” (for a WHOLE lot less dough than Mr. Carrey, thank you), the title role in “Mighty Max,” Carl Wheezer in “Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius,” Jack Fenton in “Danny Phantom,” Bobble in the “Tinkerbell” series of DVDs and hopefully more to come.

Paulsen’s extensive credits include on-camera roles in numerous motion pictures including Body Double, Stewardess School, Eyes of Fire, The Perfect Match, and Warlocked. His television acting credits include guest-starring roles on MacGyver and St. Elsewhere. Additionally, he is one of the most sought-after voice actors in the commercial arena, performing in over 1000 of commercial spots.

As passionate about “paying it forward” as he is about his lucrative career, Rob supports various charitable organizations, particularly those benefiting children and military veterans. Rob’s volunteer work with GOALmodels has been particularly rewarding. GOALmodels, a high school program in Reseda, California, is designed to inspire 9th graders to set goals and overcome obstacles in life. Blending his life experiences with passion for his work, his presentations are informative, entertaining and inspiring. In his leisure time, Rob enjoys golf, riding his motorcycle and occasionally lacing up his skates for another chance to relive his past glory on the rink. He spends the majority of his free time with his wife, Parrish, and their two Yorkshire terriers, Pooshie and Tala.

Comics Collaboration Workshop featuring Ali Cantarella, Sarah Benkin, and Sun Bros Studios

Fangirls against Fanboys: Gender and Fandom
Join a panel of UNO professors for an academic discussion on gender and fandom.

"Gender in fandom is complicated. On the one hand, fan culture is celebrated for its gender positivity. Henry Jenkins, for example, has argued that the majority of fan fiction is written by women, empowering authors to rectify gender mis-representations in popular culture, and cosplay is remarkable for its embrace of gender-fluidity and androgyny. On the other hand, the terms “fanboy” and “fangirl” clearly show that fandom is anything but “beyond gender,” as do the gender segregations at work within and between many fan communities. Our panel will discuss these and other issues in an attempt to unravel the gender politics that shape contemporary fandom and fan expressions."

Her one woman show “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch”, which started at Club Fez in New York, has now become a world-wide phenomenon, having been performed to packed houses in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Maui and the south of France, where Alison performed entirely in French to a standing room only crowd at the “Palais des Congres” in her all French version titled: “Confessions d’une Garce de La Prairie”!
In 1986 when her friend and “Little House” husband co-star, Steve Tracy, passed away due to complications of HIV/AIDS, Alison immediately began volunteering at AIDS Project Los Angeles. Her duties have ranged from working on the Southern California AIDS Hotline and the APLA food bank, (APLA’s Necessities of Life Program) to chairing the steering committee of the volunteer speakers bureau and developing “Safer Sex” workshops. She has provided AIDS education to doctors, nurses, prison inmates, service clubs, churches, department stores and schools, and spent seven years hosting the APLA educational cable television show, “AIDS Vision”. In 1992, Joel Wachs presented Alison with a resolution by the Los Angeles City Council commending her on her work on behalf of people living with HIV and AIDS. She continues to serve on the Ambassador Council of AIDS Project Los Angeles.
From 1989 through 1993 she served as Program Manager at Tuesday’s Child, an organization assisting children and families affected by HIV and AIDS. From 1989 through 2003 she served as both hostess and producer for the comedy stage at the AIDS Project Los Angeles Annual Summer Party, (on the backlot of Universal Studios), where through an evening of raucous entertainment, featuring name comedians, she helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for people living with HIV.
She currently serves on the National Advisory Board of The National Association to Protect Children (www.PROTECT.org), fighting to give children a legal and political voice in the war against child abuse. As an activist for the improvement of child protection laws, she has spoken before the California Senate and worked on legislative and political campaigns in several states, including Virginia and New York.
She has appeared on numerous television news programs discussing the legal and political issues surrounding child abuse and molestation, including Larry King Live, Nancy Grace, CNN’s Showbiz Tonight, The Insider, Court TV and Bill O’Reilly’s The Factor.
Alison currently lives in the wilds of Tujunga with her husband, musician Bob Schoonover, (from the rock and roll band “Catahoula”) and their two cats, Hannibal and Clarice. She takes pride in the fact that so many people enjoyed hating her as a girl and is more than happy to give them the opportunity to do so in the future.

Caroll Spinney Q&A Session
This moderated Q&A panel with media guest Caroll Spinney is free and open to all O Comic Con Sunday attendees! Caroll Spinney has been Big Bird since the beginning of Sesame Street, and has, in fact, spent half of his life inside a giant puppet. The times that he wasn’t inside a giant puppet, he was in a trashcan, for he is also Oscar The Grouch. He is an author, an artist, and speaker, as well as the recipient of four Daytime Emmy Awards, two Grammy Awards, and the National Academy Of Television Arts and Sciences’ Lifetime Achievement Award. He is the subject of the fascinating documentary, I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (available on Amazon Prime, if you want to prepare for his visit to O Comic Con with deeply insightful questions). He has taught countless children that birdseed is a tasty snack, that it is okay to be exactly yourself, and that sometimes it’s okay to be grouchy, too.

Back by popular demand! A Disney princess super-spy? A romantic tearjerker zombie movie? A romcom slasher flick? What crazy combinations will these wacky improvisers come up with next?

The audience helps the performers choose two contrasting movie genres and mix them together for one insane -- and incredibly active -- improvised movie. Ever wonder what would happen if John Hughes directed a space opera? If the Island of Misfit Toys were overrun by zombies? If the terrified crew of the Nosromo suddenly found themselves in an after-school special? Anything's fair game when the cast of That's No Movie gets their hands on it!

Rob Paulsen Q&A Session Sunday
This moderated Q&A panel with media guest Rob Paulsen is free and open to all O Comic Con Sunday attendees! Born in Detroit, Rob Paulsen spent his childhood in Livonia and Rochester, attending Junior and Senior high school in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Rob loved cartoons like most kids but aspired to be a professional hockey player. “Fortunately, thanks to some big, strong, kid from Winnipeg who drilled me so hard my ears are still ringing, I learned around age 18 I had neither the talent nor the temperament to make a living playing hockey. So, I turned to my other passions: singing and acting.”

The goal of bringing absolute believability to a fictional character, live-action or animated, is what every actor strives for. Those who are committed to their career and who combine experience, passion and skill are likely to succeed.

Those gifted with exceptional talent who focus on maximizing their potential by finding their own niche, quickly break away from the pack. After years of honing their craft and consistently delivering memorable performances in which the character impacts an indelible image on the viewer, the public and the industry take notice, singling out the best.

“I’m getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the 7th grade,” jests Rob, who won a Daytime Emmy in 1999 as “Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program” for Pinky and The Brain (Warner Bros.) Though nominated twice previously, the victory was especially sweet due to some formidable competition – fellow nominees Louie Anderson, Ernest Borgnine, Dennis Franz and Jeffery Tambor. In addition to his Emmy, Rob won back-to-back Annie Awards in 1997 and 1998. “I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for twenty-five years of full-time employment in this business,” he says.

“It’s a treat to portray a complex character,” Rob explains about Pinky, a goof-ball mouse with funny teeth, a head filled with clouds and an inane imagination that is punctuated with a staccato laugh. “Besides … where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like ‘Egad!,’ ‘Narf!,’ ‘Poit!,’ ‘Splonk!,’ and ‘Zort!’ are allowed and in fact, encouraged?” With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Rob’s versatility shines in his starring roles as the voices of Yakko, Pinky and Dr. Scratch ‘n’ Sniff in the Peabody and two-time Emmy award-winning series “Animaniacs.”

Some of Rob’s other well-known animated characters include Raphael of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Arthur in “The Tick,” the title role in “The Mask” (for a WHOLE lot less dough than Mr. Carrey, thank you), the title role in “Mighty Max,” Carl Wheezer in “Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius,” Jack Fenton in “Danny Phantom,” Bobble in the “Tinkerbell” series of DVDs and hopefully more to come.

Paulsen’s extensive credits include on-camera roles in numerous motion pictures including Body Double, Stewardess School, Eyes of Fire, The Perfect Match, and Warlocked. His television acting credits include guest-starring roles on MacGyver and St. Elsewhere. Additionally, he is one of the most sought-after voice actors in the commercial arena, performing in over 1000 of commercial spots.

As passionate about “paying it forward” as he is about his lucrative career, Rob supports various charitable organizations, particularly those benefiting children and military veterans. Rob’s volunteer work with GOALmodels has been particularly rewarding. GOALmodels, a high school program in Reseda, California, is designed to inspire 9th graders to set goals and overcome obstacles in life. Blending his life experiences with passion for his work, his presentations are informative, entertaining and inspiring. In his leisure time, Rob enjoys golf, riding his motorcycle and occasionally lacing up his skates for another chance to relive his past glory on the rink. He spends the majority of his free time with his wife, Parrish, and their two Yorkshire terriers, Pooshie and Tala.
