Born in Sydney, Rob began his journalism career as a student at Charles Sturt University’s Bathurst Campus, where he was politics writer for a student magazine. While at university he completed work at assorted country and metropolitan community newspapers, Associated Press and the now defunct FHM Australia.
He relocated to Swan Hill in 2010, for a cadet reporter role at The Guardian. Not to be confused with it’s UK-based counterpart, The Guardian was independently owned as part of the Elliot Newspaper Group.
As a journalist and occasional editor of the tri-weekly newspaper, Rob covered all areas of country life including court, health, police, sport, features and council. He never won any AFL tipping comps and came last in the Swan Hill Agricultural Show’s baking competition.
Rob joined the Cobram Courier team in February 2014. He said leading a community newspaper, such as the Cobram Courier, came with great responsibility – and it was a privilege to be able to tell the local stories that affect local readers.
