Hi, I'm Rob, and this is my slice of the digital pie. I'm a New Yorker with a passion for technology and great design.
I own and manage several eCommerce brands. I am the former director of Copa Digital Group, a digital media agency that helps small businesses and startups grow their revenue through digital advertising & marketing, web design & development, and branding & design. And I'm a trained Node & React/Redux and React Native developer. I am also Google AdWords-certified and hold the certification for Facebook Core Advertising.
In a previous life, I helped co-found Itemize.com, as the first employee and Digital Product Management Analyst. I handled product development, strategy and communications. Prior to joining Itemize full time, I served as a consulting advisor.
My previous full time work had me at Widmeyer Communications, where I assisted a variety of health care clients and some of the world's largest companies adopt social media tools into their communications to engage with their customers and colleagues.
I graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in American Culture and a minor in U.S. History.
My focus for this blog has evolved, as I have evolved, both professionally and personally. From this point on, you'll find a mix of posts on technology, sports & fitness, and design & culture.
If you want to connect to me through one of my social networking profiles, drop me a line and mention that you saw my blog so I know where you're coming from.
