Hi there! My name is Robert Occhialini. I’ve been updating this site sporadically since November 16th, 1997, making this site one of the earliest blogs on the web. I’ve recently been working on getting all of the old posts up on this version of the site, and hope to have a better archive navigational system in place soon.
I’m a father to two boys, and husband, and live in Decatur, GA. I love Decatur. I grew up in Connecticut, but have made peace with living in the South. I’ve been a Mac guy from 1987 on, and worked as a writer and editor on some of the earliest Mac sites on the web because of my love for the platform.
Yankees. Atlanta United. Lakers. Falcons.
Currently, I am between jobs, and I have recently started looking for the next thing. You can read about my qualifications on my LinkedIn Profile. I would like to continue to lead teams that create digital products.
Most recently, I worked on esports and ELEAGUE for Turner Sports as their VP, esports Products and Technologies. I preferred my unofficial title, which was “Chief Nerd.” I’ve been a gamer all my life, and it just made sense to work on esports given my background, and its rise in popularity.
I previously worked on products that help people enjoy the sport of professional basketball working for NBA Digital as the VP of Digital Products. My focus there was on the NBA apps and NBA League Pass products business on the web, iOS, Android, and TV Connected devices. You can read more about that on my LinkedIn profile. This site is mine, and the opinions I express here are mine alone. Turner Sports is not on the hook for any of my opinions or mistakes.
If you want to get in touch with me, I am @bump over on Twitter. That’s honestly the safest way for us to get to know each other.
You won’t see any ads on this site. I may, from time to time, include referral links to items or apps I recommend. This site is just something I like doing, and I am not looking to turn it into anything more.
