Rob was born and raised in Connecticut and graduated from Middlebury College with a BA in Economics. During the early 80’s he biked, hiked, and worked in New Zealand, Australia, and Southeast Asia before settling into a career as a computer network specialist for Columbia University, Banker’s Trust, and Digital Equipment. After earning his CFP in the mid 90’s, he ran a small financial planning business until 2004. A resident of Kittery Point since 2000, he has been an active volunteer with the Kittery Land Trust and the Mt. Agamenticus to the Sea Conservation Initiative, helping to conserve over 1000 acres in Southern Maine. Rob can most often be found outdoors on the water or veggie gardening during the summer and telemark or cross-country skiing during the winter. His adventures have included mountain climbing in Nepal and Bolivia, summiting Denali, sailing from Hobart to Sydney, and backcountry skiing in Greenland and Iceland. While indoors, he enjoys sipping Italian red wine, making pasta, and strumming his ukulele.
