About Rob
Three kids, four dogs, and seven acres - It's a busy life!

I was born and raised in Southern California, went to USC undergrad then Vanderbilt for my MBA. Met my wife Sarah while I was working at Microsoft and she was at Cisco Systems. We got married in the historic Sonoma Mission and through that process decided to by a weekend home in Sonoma where we lived part time for four years.

Technology was good to us but nevertheless we decided to leave for wine country full time in 2005. We found a beautiful house in the Coombsville section of Napa and have been here ever since.

I'm on the board of the Napa Valley Country Club - how they let me on with a 36 handicap is a mystery! I'm pretty active in local politics, helping to guide the future of the Napa Valley.
