Oh, Hello! 👋
I'm Rob, nice to meet you.
I'm a proud member of Alphabet Workers Union (AWU-CWA), where I previously served as the chapter coordinator for New York City. I'm also a member of NYC-DSA. I believe these are two important vehicles for leaving our workplaces, society, and world a little bit better off than we've found them.
I graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Computer Science from Tufts University in Somerville, MA. Before that, I grew up on Long Island, NY, where I attended public school.
Music is my main extracurricular obsession. Circa Survive, Coheed and Cambria, and The Contortionist are a few of my favorite bands; according to Spotify my favorite genre in 2020 was djent. I started collecting records in college and have somewhere around 100 in my collection now. My current musical focus is improving as a guitarist, but I also grew up playing bass guitar, and on occasion mess around with Ableton Live.
I like to game, but don't find the time to do it consistently. Currently, I'm playing a mix of Chrono Trigger, Halo, and Returnal. My biggest gaming achievements are probably beating Bloodborne and Demon's Souls.
I live in New York City with my partner, and hope to add a puppy into the mix whenever we have a bit more space. 🐶
