Rob works as a land conservation consultant, negotiating land protection projects and advising on funding and partnerships. He recently stepped down after eight years as Managing Director of Conservation for The Trustees of Reservations. His role there included land protection planning, building partnerships with other organizations, overseeing the Conservation Restriction Stewardship Program of The Trustees, supervising the land acquisition staff, and working directly with landowners and partners on Trustees acquisitions. A graduate of Oberlin College with a focus on plant ecology, Rob worked for a decade as a Boston cabinet and furniture maker, then returned to his conservation roots in 1990.
