A native of the Pacific Northwest, Rob spent his formative years playing in the arctic, specifically Fairbanks, Alaska. Years later in Seattle, he filled a variety of roles in retail and service industries, learning the basics of business relationships, and discovering what makes consumers tick.
After finishing his BA in Design at Western Washington University, Rob began his professional career at Kendall Ross, where an understanding of consumers and a penchant for retail therapy helped him earn a place on their team after completing an internship. Rob's most recent experience with AIGA involved planning the successful Bal Masque in 2006.
After nine years in Seattle, as a retailer, designer and marketer, Rob is ready to give back to his professional community by helping AIGA Seattle build on the successes of the past year as its Sponsorship Director.
