Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Rob had access to travel opportunities at a young age. Sister Cities International took him to small town in the Rhine Valley of Germany and the mountains of Costa Rica on official, city sponsored exchange programs. A career in tourism seemed a natural fit. In 2003, Rob graduated from the University of Georgia and moved to Costa Rica, taking a job as a vacation sales specialist with then Costa Rican Vacations. In 2007 Rob moved to Panama City, Panama and ran the company's expanded Central America offerings there, now called Namu Travel. Now in his 10th year in Panama, he co-owns the business with four other partners. Rob currently works as the Director of Business Development for the Namu Travel Group. His love of travel and helping others see the world helped him contribute to building Namu into a highly successful travel organization.
