After completing a business administration degree in Finance & Accounting at the University of Richmond, Rob began his career at KPMG in Austin, Texas. Rob then moved to Seattle, Washington to climb mountains and to ride bicycles while volunteering at two arts organizations. In Seattle, Rob met his wife Siobhan, originally from Wellfleet, and they decided to move to Cape Cod. He then completed a sculpture degree at Maine College of Art before settling in Wellfleet year-round where he now lives with Siobhan, their son Malachi, Airedale mix Otto, and eight hens. You will most likely find Rob enjoying the landscape of the Cape spending his free time hiking, cycling, surfing and boating.
