Though Rob is a nonprofit database developer by profession, he holds a deep belief in the role that local journalism can play in strengthening connections within a community.

As a resident of the northwest side of Chicago for the past 19 years, Rob has viewed his own connection to his community as an ongoing participation and learning process- as curator of a music series in Logan Square, an active member of Grassroots Illinois Action, blogger with Avondale Time Machine, and co-author of Avondale and Chicago's Polish Village.
