Born and raised on Long Island, NY, Rob started playing guitar at the age of 13. By his late teens, Rob became recognized within the NY music scene. After graduating high school, Rob received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. At Berklee, he honed his craft and became a versatile musician, playing in several bands and ensembles around the Boston area. His main band, The Neon Calm, wrote and recorded two albums. Rob graduated from Berklee in May of 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Music and moved to Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue his dreams.
In LA, Rob started to showcase his business skills outside of his playing career, putting to good use what he was trained for at Berklee. Working for Rickey Minor Productions, he rose to be production manager and was Rickey’s right-hand man. As the production manager, he racked up a very impressive list of TV production credits that can be found on his IMDB profile. As a knowledgeable and well-versed musician, Rob was able to offer production skills and unique consultation in the genre of music related programming. His skills gained him a reputation as one of the premier music production managers in the industry.
In addition to his production responsibilities, Rob focused on playing sessions and building a name for himself within the LA music scene. He started to receive recognition among the industry elite as "the go-to guy" for bringing "the rock." At that point, Rickey Minor took Rob under his wing. As the music director for some of the world’s most famous music shows, including American Idol, the Grammy Awards, Don't Forget the Lyrics, and most recently The Tonight Show, Rickey hired Rob to play on several of the leading industry gigs. Highlights include: American Idol, America's Got Talent, VH1's Big in ‘06, and a multitude of recording sessions and concerts.
