Born and raised in Macomb County’s Clinton Township, Rob cultivated a love of music, writing, and media at a young age.

After learning to play guitar at age 14, Rob co-created an underground student newspaper at 17 because he felt the school’s paper was too restrictive. At 19, he produced an independent film, “Tainted” – a vampire/comedy, that played at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival and was picked up by Troma Entertainment, the company best known for “The Toxic Avenger.”
