Rob on Santorini Island (2013)

Robert Case, author and keynote speaker,

is fascinated by the heroes journey. He writes about and presents on the simple joys and satisfactions of raising children, focusing on the myriad ways in which they can and do emancipate into adults.

Rob once lived the life of an overfed, introverted lawyer in Littleton, Colorado, with a taste for writing in his journal during the early morning hours. The kids were in high school, about to graduate. But then, Columbine happened. His days of practicing law were numbered, and once the children graduated and moved into their own lives, steadily replaced by creative writing workshops, improv shows, and community theater, including the role of Morrie in Tuesdays With Morris. Today, Rob advocates for living well at any age, bicycle adventure, and reading often.

His latest book project is a work of creative nonfiction and memoir titled: Cycling Through Columbine.

The hashtag, DaedalusR, stands for Daedalus Rising. The words are borrowed from the Greeks and symbolize the midlife challenge of any parent and especially the father, to come to terms with the natural inclination to search for one’s purpose in life and the create of a legacy. If there are children in the picture, to emancipate them well. The topic is the subject of his earlier works: Icarus and the Wing Builder (2014), an alternative history inspired by the original myth and Daedalus Rising (2008).

In addition to a JD from the University of Denver, he holds an MS from the University of Utah in Geophysics, and a Geology degree from Allegheny College.
