Bobby is co-founder and Partner of MeanPug overseeing all technical projects for the company. As the proud dog-father of our muse and CPO, Tikki, Bobby frequently likes to remind everyone that “the name was his idea”. Growing up in the idyllic Hudson Valley of New York, it soon became apparent that computers and technology were natural creative outlets for Bobby and led to him pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science at Northeastern University. Upon graduation Bobby cut his chops in the startup world, acting as engineer #1 at two separate startups, both of which grew to over 25 employees before seeing successful exits. After 4 years of startup experience, Bobby moved to leadership at the country’s largest plaintiffs law firm, Morgan and Morgan, where he led the company’s digital transformation initiatives as Director of Engineering.
Bobby has accumulated a diverse skill set over the course of his years of experience in the startup and corporate spheres. On web, he is proficient in Python, Django, Nodejs, Express, PHP, WordPress, Jekyll and front-end technologies like React, Redux, and Backbone. To complement this set of skills, he has devops experience ranging from Cloudformation and Troposphere to Packer, Ansible, and Kubernetes. Bobby loves to put these skills to use as a technical leader for MeanPug clientele.

Get to Know Bobby
What do you like to do outside of work?
Bobby: Obviously my number 1 hobby is little Tikki, but there’s only so much space on the page for an answer and I don’t want to be “that guy” that fills it all with his dog. Outside of the pup, my two great passions in life are building and sports. My love for building is satisfied by my work and I get my fill of sport through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which I’ve trained for 11 years now. I’m also a student of history and love a good sci-fi novel, so if you’ve got a good recommendation I’d love to hear it.
What is your favorite part of the job?
Bobby: At the end of the day, what I really love is to build and create. Whether an informational website, a complex business process, or an Android application, my passion is in the process of nothing => something.
Yankees or Mets?
Bobby: Not a baseball guy unfortunately, now if the question were Giants or Jets…
Bobby: Nope I don’t think so, that pretty much covers everything about me. For those looking to grow their business, either new or existing, definitely read more about Andrew who specializes in all things advertising including PPC, SEO, Display, and Native ad formats.
