Rob has been an Adobe Community Professional (ACP) for a few years and has been of huge help in the community. He has contributed more than 1250 posts. His expertise in multiple Adobe products has earned him more than 370 likes 👍🏻.

Let's learn a bit more about him.


Rob has done his Bachelor's from Purdue University. He has been an Adobe Certified Instructor in After Effects and Premiere Pro in the Chicago area for 11 years and has taught in 26 different states and Toronto, Canada. Isn't that great?


He has been in the television industry for over 25 years managing studios, directing, lighting, producing, shooting, and editing. He has worked on Soundstage for PBS, documentaries, and an interview with Supreme Court Justice — Ruth Bader Ginsburg.


Rob, we thank you for your contribution to the community. Continue the great work! 🙌🏻
