A long, long, time ago in a farmers field far, far away, Rob noticed a change in the wind and became fascinated with the weather. Why, you ask? (Pause for you to say “why?”) Well, it was at that moment he realized he was downwind of the manure pile on the turkey farm where he grew up! After that, he watched the weather very carefully in an effort to save his sense of smell!
OK, that’s not entirely true but I did grow up on a turkey farm and I have been fascinated with weather and broadcasting for quite some time.
I began my career in radio before making the jump to TV. I worked on Good Morning Toronto.
After that, I decided to pursue my dream of living and working in the U.S. and joined Wake Up Rochester in Rochester NY. I spent three years in “Bills Country” before coming to my senses and moving to “Packers-Town!” (GO PACK!) I also spent some time trying to make it big as a comic actor and studied the art of improvisation at Toronto’s Second City Theatre with teachers like SCTV’s Joe Flaherty!
I moved here with my beautiful wife, Tanya, who’s the real comedian in the family, my son Noah who loves all things hockey and hockey related and my daughter Nyla who is destined to be a superstar – just ask her! While we’ve been here we’ve added a little cheesehead – Nadia – she’s the most amazing little cutie you’ll ever meet.
We feel very at home here in the great city of Milwaukee and I look forward to getting you ready for your day every morning on WakeUp -- and chatting with you all on Real Milwaukee.
