Rob is from Louisville Kentucky and has had a lifelong passion for military aircraft and technology. Growing up, he built aircraft models, launched model rockets and read every book he could find on military aviation. As a career in military aviation was not in the cards, Rob studied International Relations, Business and Technology, which prepped him for the Internet boom.
After college and graduate school, Rob began his career in business technology and strategy. Over the years, he has built and led technology firms as well as acted as a key advisor for start-ups and Fortune 100 companies. Residing in Austin, Texas now, Rob runs a software development firm. When not working, he spends time with family and enjoys sharing his passion about aviation with his 4-year-old twin boys.
