Professor Bobeldyk spent time as a road warrior for 3 years traveling across the country teaching Network and Network Security courses as a Cisco Certified Instructor (CCSI #20292). He then accepted a job at a local Cisco reseller in hopes of building their networking profile, and he and his team were able to sell over $4 million worth of Cisco equipment and services in the first 18 months of his employment. This mark was up from the $100,000 that they had sold in the previous 5 years. After growing his own successful consulting company, Professor Bobeldyk accepted a position at Davenport University where his passion for Computer Science has grown. Professor Bobeldyk also has an avid interest in sports, playing volleyball at the collegiate level, as well as playing on a semi-pro beach volleyball tour for 8 years. He has recently transitioned his love for playing sports into coaching baseball, basketball and women’s volleyball.

He graduated from Calvin College with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and later from Grand Valley State University with a Master’s degree.
