On a personal note, Rob started ski racing for New York State at age five and continued until he left for college at age twenty, where he skied for his college team. At age twenty-eight, Rob became the youngest ski instructor to receive a Level 3 teaching certification issued by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). In addition to skiing, Rob is a competitive and elite rower; he rowed for his college team and now coaches a Masters team. Aside from his athletic prowess, Rob is a modern-day MacGyver – he builds home backup power systems and designs his own electronics (navigation lights for rowing) for fun. Rob lives in Seattle with his fiancé and two German shepherd dogs.
