Review Editor


Rob is a husband, father, avid traveler, and recovering hobby junky. He holds the title of President & CEO of KPS3 and current Board Chair for the Children’s Cabinet. He also holds the title of IronMan (Cozumel), has raced across India in a motorized rickshaw, Jeeped across the Serengeti, and backflipped off the great pyramid.

When he isn’t running a company or off on a crazy adventure, Rob enjoys rock climbing, rafting, backpacking, and building pretty much anything he can get his hands on. And when all of the energy is gone for the day, you can find him sitting on a couch, writing or watching a movie next to his wife Shayna, son Carter, and daughter Hailey.
