He is the creator of The Food Waste Fiasco, a campaign that strives to end food waste and hunger.

His current project is to grow and forage 100% of his food a year (from 11/11/2018 to 11/11/2019). Rob travels the USA and the world speaking and hosting action days getting people involved and activated in making the world a happier, healthier place for all. He is the host of Free Ride on Discovery Channel, the author of Dude Making a Difference, and has spoken at over 130 events in 13 countries.
