Rob’s fascination with web development pre-dates the Internet.

For real.

When he was just 10 years old, he was given a build-it-yourself toy computer – and he couldn’t put it down. Next thing you know, he had written his first QBasic program – and it’s onward and upward from there.

Before joining Revolution, Rob was a web developer with Wyndham Worldwide, where he built augmented reality training apps, video games for the Apple App and Google Play stores, iPad kiosks and indoor navigation technologies.

Before that, he founded his own web and app development company, where he built websites, apps, CMS theming, web apps, back-end systems and more.

At Revolution, Rob is one of our lead developers (translation: he’s Brett’s BFF). Rob touches nearly all of our digital projects – from full web builds, to mobile app work, to when someone on the strategy side needs help with something’s back-end. (That came out wrong.)

He is a master of front-end languages the likes of HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Angular, Bootstrap and Sass; back-end languages including Node.JS, PHP, MySQL, Java and C#; and spoken languages such as English. He’s also a big fan of mobile-first responsive design and awesome tools like Bower and Grunt.

Rob and his wife recently welcomed a new member to their family – a ridiculously adorable Husky puppy, Watson. (Which explains his scratched-up arms and new love for apple bitter spray.)

A co-worker once told Rob he was “too nice” to be a developer – exactly our type of guy.

Say hello any time.
