Rob grew up exploring the waters and woods of New England, spaces that to this day conjure a profound respect and admiration for nature and for the things that live there. He taught himself to fly fish and to tie flies at a young age, a pursuit that opened a world to him he would otherwise not have known. His fly rod has taken him to waters all over North America, from the streams of Vermont, to the flats of the Bahamas, to the rivers of Michigan, to the mountains of Idaho where his favorite trout, westslope cutthroat, swim in some of the most beautiful waters in this country. He is a hunter and strives to strengthen the modern perception of hunting, so that others may take the opportunity to experience the richness of forging deep connections to wild landscapes and to wild food sources.
Before joining BHA Rob was a journalist, photographer and editor in the magazine industry. In his most recent role he served as the editorial director overseeing three national media brands and led their digital evolution. He’s bringing that experience to BHA specifically because of the organization’s inclusive values and because of its big-picture view on the policies impacting our public lands and waters.
