At the age of five, Rob drew a picture of the devil while a student at a parochial school. This got him in trouble with the nuns but it also affirmed his calling to be an artist.
In 2008, Rob took up photography using a cheap low-tech camera but with a firm resolve to make good use of it. Since then, Rob has published some of his photos through photography periodicals and as book covers. One can also view Rob’s work on his website, Just an Observer (http://www.justanobserver.com/) and through his published photo books.
Rob and his wife Rose are parents of one daughter. They reside in Chino Hills, CA with their dog and cat.
