Here are some words from former students and co-workers:
From the guidance you gave me I was able to create a project that surpassed everyone’s expectations. The faculty said it was the most advanced project ever shot at the school. I probably saved days…weeks of time.

When clients ask me for talent recommendations, I have a "go to" list of top tier artists. Rob sits comfortably at the top of that list. He's one of those rare breed of artist that thinks outside the box, and comes up with innovative creative solutions to tackle the most complicated challenges. The very fact that he's willing to share that knowledge, is a huge opportunity for his students to learn the real techniques from a proven master. Rob's the man.
