Rob makes his home in Palo Alto with his wife, Aimee, and their three children. He can often be heard trying to riff on the guitar somewhere in the ServiceRocket office, and considers himself to be Joe Satriani’s Number One Fan and look-a-like. He hopes to one day join his idol on stage, but for now, any place with an electrical outlet will do.
