Performer Handler, Program Team
A self-professed music snob, Rob made the early, nearly fatal mistake of seeing Barry Manilow in concert when he was 12 years old. He spent the next 34 years in therapy by seeing over 500 lives shows in 20 states and a couple in London. In the process, he started Analog Productions to help promote small, independent artists booking mostly at Moe Joe’s in Clemson but has promoted a few shows at The Handlebar and a music festival in Seneca.
Rob loved the TEDx vibe and saw the opportunity to help expose original and eclectic artists to a wider audience. He liked being around the creative environment and always feels energized after a meeting….which he never attends.
He reads liner notes.
He’s obsessed with concert photography, album covers and things that spin at 33 1/3 RPM
Oh…and in his spare time he manages 11 Walmart stores in the Upstate.
He lives in Clemson with wife Kristi. Between both of them, they are still trying to figure out how they have a daughter who’s a freshman at College of Charleston and a son who is a sophomore in high school…who’s never home. Thank god for Twitter, which is their primary means of communication. He has become quite adept at thinking 140 characters at a time. #truestory
Rob once saved Brooke Shields from drowning and promptly blew the reward money by having Van Halen play his birthday party.
