He will also be working towards adding new ideas and ways to improve efficiency from his many experiences.

They have Shadow, a German shepherd, while Rob has Lola, a mixed lab, who was a rescue and was his original family dog. Rob has twin daughters who are 18, which brings a new set of challenges, but he loves them very much and they are heading to college this fall.
