About Our CEO
Robert (Bob) Cohen: As the CEO, he has a very diverse background in computing, Digital
Imaging, Photography, Mold Inspection, Desktop Publishing and Design.
During his sophomore year in High School, he apprenticed with a
Master Photographer to gain more incite into his passion for the art of photography. He shot his first commercial catalog at the age of 17 for his Uncle who was co-owner of Botel Rings in Manhattan
, NY. He joined the Navy in November of 1967 as a Photographer. After Basic Training at Great Lakes, Illinois, he was assigned to the Navy Combat Camera Group. While there, he was asked if he
would like to be assigned to the Elite Navy SEAL Teams as a combat photographer. He wasn't sure if he met all of the physical qualifications for the assignment, even though he was under heavy physical training during
his junior and senior years in high school.
He was accepted to work with the SEAL
Teams and started his physical training with them and completed 16 of the 26 weeks of training required of any non-SEAL Team Member. Being that he was not considered a real SEAL by their standards, he still was able
to be assigned missions to Vietnam with the teams and was able to keep up with them on every mission he went on.
Once he was out of the Teams due to injuries received in Vietnam and returned to normal
duty, he was assigned to the photo lab at the then active Naval Air Station Cecil Field in Jacksonville, FL. After completion of his tour of duty there, he went into the inactive reserves
and went back to his home town of New York City in September of 1971.
In July of 1973, a year after his son was born, he re-enlisted
into active duty and was sent to RVAH-12, a Navy Reconnaissance Heavy Attack Squadron originally based out of Albany, Georgia but then all those squadrons moved to NAS Key West, FL as their permanent home because NAS
Albany was being shut down.
Because of his aptitude of electronics, he was sent to school
to repair the Aerial Photographic Systems and then the actual test bench repair school at Chicago Aerial. Here is where he got his first taste of working on computers as the
bench's primary system was using a DEC PDP-11 computer (punch tape programming) for the aerial photo system analysis. This was in 1976 and has been working on computers ever since.
