After purchasing a 100+ year-old home, it quickly become apparent that he'd need to learn a thing or two about renovation. As with many who start with great ambitions, Rob soon found out that it takes twice as long and costs twice as much to get things done right. Plus, for every problem you fix, there are many more lurking behind the walls. It was while working on his house that he was able to marry his passion for renovation with his professional life as a public relations consultant. For the past seven years, he has become the go-to guy in the building products PR sector, having worked with Gorilla Glue, TimberTech, Robert Bosch, Skil, C.H. Hanson, Husqvarna, and (currently) the media relations expert for Senco. Now, after putting a whole host of projects under his belt, Rob will be sharing his experiences with us, having kept abreast of the industry from the perspective of a remodeler and manufacturer's representative for the past twelve years.
