Robert Borson's career as a writer/editor took him over a span of four decades to Chicago, Stockholm, Madrid, New York, Sacramento, and San Francisco. In California he worked as chief speechwriter for Bank of America, then headquartered in San Francisco, before starting his own communications company. There he served clients such as Charles Schwab, Visa, Hewlett Packard, and Autodesk. Later in life, he moved to Birmingham, Alabama, where he began creating a series of phantasmagorical winged sculptures, such as the namesake of his new children’s book "Astra the Flying Cow." Other sculptures included the Newsboy Angel, now part of the art collection at Birmingham’s Civil Rights Institute.
