principal/founder

After a successful college career at Loyola University New Orleans, Rob ventured to Washington, DC for reporting internships with The Washington Times and The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Washington bureau, as well as a fellowship at the acclaimed Washington Center for Politics & Journalism. Upon completion of these programs, Rob decided that he wanted to pursue a career in both writing and design and turned to the strong association sector in DC for experience.

After spending more than a year at the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works, he accepted the position of Director of Communications with the Greater Capital Area Association of REALTORS. His duties for those several years included: Publications, marketing, Web sites, electronic publications, speechwriting, strategic partnerships, media relations, public relations, writing, editing, design, advertising, coordinating community involvement projects and redesigning numerous titles for several metro area REALTOR associations. Since beginning college, he has consulted on numerous freelance and volunteer projects as well.

Rob brings with him a comprehensive understanding of the workings of communications and associated professions. He has garnered several writing and design awards in his career, including The Los Angeles Times/Associated Collegiate Press Award for Best News Story in 1999, the Gold Award for Web site excellence from the American Society of Webmasters, and while at Loyola, he was Editor-In-Chief of its award-winning student newspaper, The Maroon. He has also worked for The Times-Picayune (New Orleans daily newspaper), The New York Times (New Orleans bureau as assistant to Rick Bragg), Gambit Weekly (New Orleans alternative weekly) and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

He is a member of the DC Advertising Club, IABC Washington, the DC Preservation League and several real estate industry associations. He is on the Board of Directors for the Thomas Circle Singers, a Development Committee member with the DC Preservation League and participates in charitable events throughout the year.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications/Print Journalism (minor: graphic design) and is accumulating credits for his CAE and ABC designations. Rob founded the firm in September 2005.
