Rob reads code, writes code and detests Internet Explorer. He loves to help his fellow coders in the trenches and work with all the different members on the team. Don’t give him too much caffeine or exposure to sunlight - kind of like a Gremlin.
Prying his fingers away from the keyboard

In his spare time, Robert likes to blow off steam by playing hockey and the guitar.
