Rob graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2012 with first class honours in Musicology. Following that, he worked in artistic administration at both the Australian Youth Orchestra and Gondwana National Choirs, two of Australia’s best training grounds for young musicians. He then spent two years in Strategic Development at the Sydney Opera House, Australia’s busiest performing arts centre, where he worked with a range of stakeholders, primarily on communications and fundraising projects. While at the Opera House, he volunteered as a writer and broadcaster for Sydney’s independent community radio station, FBi Radio, and worked as a professional choral singer. Since moving to Manhattan in 2016, he has been singing regularly with the Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and has interned in programming at both National Sawdust in Brooklyn and Moogfest in Durham, NC, and in development at The Kitchen in Chelsea.
