As the son of two lifelong educators Rob was determined to follow in his parents footsteps. Rob’s background in technology was cultivated from an early age and started professionally while in high school working for the very district he attended. He had a natural gift for troubleshooting problems with an open mind and endless patience. After high school he continued working in various tech support roles and after graduating from University of Central Missouri with a teaching degree was ready to switch gears and get in the classroom. Somehow he just couldn’t shake his love for technology and his desire to work in the education sector so he began working under the role of Educational Technology Coordinator for School of the Osage in Osage Beach, Mo. where he has remained for 10 years. With over 15 years experience in web development, software support and training, Rob has added an invaluable resource to Old Empire and continues to amaze customers at his skill and determination.
