I am an experienced creative producer and line producer specializing in short and long form branded content, non-scripted sports and music series, and creative development in the comedic space. I have produced award winning branded content for ACE Hardware, Barbasol, Diet Dr Pepper, Duracell, Old Spice, and Pizza Hut. While at Onion Labs, I had the privilege of working with and leading some of the most creative and funny people in advertising. Our work won the agency awards including "Best Content Studio" at the 2018 Digiday Publishing Awards and "Best Video Ad" for our work with Diet Dr Pepper at the 2019 Digiday Video Awards.
On the development side, I created and produced "The Every Night Club" pilot for MTV, which was based on my original web series, “Electronic Spotlight.” Additionally, I have had two original series compete as finalists in the New York Television Festival.
I began my career as a writer/director/performer and am a proud graduate of the UCB and iO improv and sketch writing programs. I have taught classes on producing comedic branded content at iO in Chicago. I am a Chicago native (Go Bears! Go Cubs!) and went to NYU Tisch for Theater and Producing.
On the home front, I have a beautiful wife and daughter whose about to turn two! My friends call me DadBob because, let’s face it, my 8-pack abs aren’t quite what they used to be :-) I currently reside in Pasadena, CA.
Let’s get a coffee and make something great! Say Hey below.

"Rob is behind all our best work. He’s a creative problem solver and great collaborator. He has so much confidence and poise which puts creative teams and clients at ease. Rob is the first person you go to when you’re trying to make something happen in the conceptual stage and who you want on set to keep everything running smooth."
-Eric Flinn, Creative Director, Onion Labs
“To put it simply: Rob gets the job done, and he gets it done well and beyond expectations. As one of the most reliable Producers I've managed, I was always confident in Rob's ability to knock each and every project out of the park. One of Rob's biggest assets was his varied tool belt of skills. His ability to effectively communicate with team members, clients, and crew kept the 'train on the tracks'. Faced with challenges or changes, he was able to appropriately bob-and-weave to meet both external and internal deadlines. Rob excels in both collaborative and individualized projects and tasks. Beyond just getting the job done, Rob was constantly seeking constructive feedback and clamoring to help others or take on another project. Working with Rob was an absolute pleasure and I would be happy to serve as a recommendation for him for any future opportunity.”
-Meredith Shedden, Supervising Producer, Onion Inc.
