BOB MADDAMMA, born in Pittsburgh, raised in Pittsburgh; Centerville, Va.; Chalfont St. Giles, United Kingdom; and Rochester, N.Y., is a copy editor for DK Pittsburgh Sports.
Career: Bob has extensive sales, communication and management experience for several companies, including Wegmans Food Markets, Sentry Safe, Xerox Corporation and Rochester Regional Healthcare. He is currently a freelance technical writer for small businesses, startups and charity organizations, covering everything from speechwriting and presentations to manufacturing process sheets and employee manuals.
Personal: Bob currently resides in Fairport, N.Y., a Rochester suburb, with his wife, Sue, his two collegiate kids, Mary Beth and Bobby (when they're not in school), and their chocolate lab, Penny. He bleeds black-and-gold, which confounds his doctors, but his passion is baseball. He would almost rather watch the Pirates win a game in mid-May than the other teams win a championship. Almost. He's a huge supporter of Queens Park Rangers FC, currently in the EPL, his adopted team from living in the U.K. When not engrossed in sporting events, he reads voraciously.
