Rob joined our creative crew in 2017. He originally applied to work as a video producer, but when we discovered the other rabbits he could pull out of his hat, we decided he should not be confined to one discipline.
He spent 11 years in New York City in a succession of creative jobs that began with a stint as a costume production assistant on a movie set. After an internship at The Onion, he moved on to Mochila, Inc., where he became a video content manager. This springboard led to his role as Director of Content at RecordSetter, an online platform that integrates top brands into record-setting videos. This gig landed him on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as an official world-record adjudicator.
Prior to joining JS, Rob was a Sr. Creative Producer for Learned Evolution (LE), which was acquired by SFX Entertainment. At LE, he focused on running and growing social media channels, email marketing, advertising and promotions for Brooklyn Bowl in New York. At SFX, he produced experiential brand activations at music festivals across the map, from conception to execution.
Rob earned a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology at The University of Colorado, which fed his curiosity about people, along with his love of the outdoors. He’s climbed 14 of Colorado’s 52 Fourteeners and continues to explore nature in his quest to visit all 50 U.S. states (only Alaska and N. Dakota remain undiscovered).
A native Atlantan, Rob ventured back our way to put down roots with his wife and young daughters. They spend their leisure time rediscovering the bountiful cultural treats Atlanta offers. Given his former volunteerism as a certified tree pruner in New York, we think our City in the Forest is in good hands under his watchful eye.
