As Aspire’s marketing coordinator, Rob’s short job description is to help make the Aspire name a household term among the Green and Snow industries. In more detail, his job responsibilities include sales support, media relations, event management and web content creation.
Rob came to this planet from the galaxy Boomsha Kalaka and is still adjusting to human society, which he finds fascinating. His absolutely-not-an-outer-space-alien cover story includes growing up in Mark Twain’s hometown of Hannibal, MO, and earning a BA in Communications from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA.
After college, Rob spent seven years at Bleiweiss Communications, a boutique PR firm in Calabasas, CA, that specializes in nonprofit clients. There, he learned magazine layout, photography, news reporting, video production, event management and worked his way up from communications assistant to staff writer and account manager. In 2013, he returned to Missouri and became an HR communications writer and internal webmaster for Express Scripts before joining Aspire in 2017.
Rob loves human technology and is a fanatical gearhead. He loves everything with an engine and has both his private pilot license and motorcycle endorsement. In his free time, he enjoys writing stories, poetry and music, as well as trying new and strange different types of food.
He lives with his wife in St. Louis and spends lots of time with his identical twin toddler nephews and their golden retriever, whom he sometimes considers the higher form of intelligent life.
