A car freak all his life, Rob is an independent creator armed with a Transportation Design degree. He's worked at several product design firms and just came off a 15-year stint designing Hot Wheels at Mattel. He loves all kinds of cars, having owned Volkswagens, BMWs, Mustangs, and several Japanese cars over the years. His garage currently holds a never-ending 1968 Mercury Cougar project and a 2016 Chevy SS. When he’s not designing stuff or wrenching, Rob enjoys photography, cycling, travel, and working on his mid-century ranch house. He’s always looking for the next big adventure.
