About Rob

I'm a Co-founder of Realize (Realize.ai - Deep Learning SaaS solutions @ Matter through Co-FoundersLabs), MDNetX (Mdnetx.com - physician provider data @ Matter), Clymene Labs (http://dciifr.webflow.io - IT company through Co-FounderLabs @ CIE), Past advisor to Portapure (Portapure.com - water filtration @ Impact Engine / TechStars), past advisor to a Genetics Diagnostic startup (in stealth development through CoFounderLabs), and past COO to Cara Health (the leading edge of predictive linguistic analytics @ 1871).

I am always interested in exploring new ideas, and beating them up on the whiteboard over coffee. Despite my current activities in data, my interests and experiences are diverse. I spent a number of years advising small businesses (everything from vineyards to LTAV), and executing strategic business operations ($100M+) and agreements in the DOD. So, don't hesitate to give me a shout if you want to get together for a chat. No obligations.

For those that are just in need of assistance; I'm always willing to help out where, and if I can. I do so often through CoFoundersLabs, and maintain many great contacts and friendships therein. So, don't be afraid to shout out should you have any questions, or just want to talk something through. I am happy to roll up my sleeves and help you create a successful company; and no I don't want your equity. I've had plenty of great help myself. Karma.
