Senior Financial Advisor

Rob's Bio

Rob believes his calling is to help families achieve financial confidence in retirement. Since joining Strategic Wealth Designers in 2017, that’s the No. 1 goal he hears from his clients. He genuinely enjoys meeting families nearing or in retirement and hearing so many amazing stories.

Rob originally thought his life’s purpose was to become a high school teacher and football coach. However, after growing up in the restaurant industry, his career went in a different direction. Moving up the ranks, Rob eventually began cooking. He spent years as a chef at a variety of different types of restaurants, including the James Beard House. However, an unfortunate circumstance with his mother’s health changed the course of his career. After helping his parents work with a financial advisor, Rob found his new purpose: to help families with their finances. Through much prayer and discussion, he found his way to Strategic Wealth Designers.

Rob passed the Series 65 securities exam and holds life and health insurance licenses. He attended Western Kentucky University, where he played football and studied English. Rob was previously a featured financial advisor on WDRB Fox 41 and Local 12 in the Cincinnati market.

Rob combines his love of cooking with his passion for helping people achieve their retirement goals on his YouTube cooking show, “A Taste of Retirement,” where he shows viewers how to create world-class meals while he dishes out retirement tips!

Faith, family, friends, food and sports shape the foundation of Rob’s purpose-driven life. He and his wife, Casie, have been together since they were teenagers. They have four children, Kiara, Saibrin, Silas and Zion. A lifelong sports enthusiast, he lives vicariously through his children’s successes.
