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.
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.
Prior to that, I worked for Vineberg Communications PR, an independent, boutique technology public relations firm.
I graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA 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 start-up life, social media, 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.
If you see something that interests you, please leave a comment- I'd love to chat!
*Disclosure* Sometimes I link to things that I like. Most of those things are just straight-forward links and I don't get any financial compensation. But sometimes I link to Amazon, where I have an affiliate account. If you buy something from my link, I get a lil' cut and we both win. If you see an Amazon link, you can assume it's an affiliate link.
