Rob completed his Masters in Systems Design for Internet Applications at Newcastle University in 2004 and has been passionate about and working in the IT sector ever since.
After discovering Bitcoin he immediately fell down the "Bitcoin rabbit hole" learning all he could about how Bitcoin works, why it was important and the potential future socio-economic effects.
While running the small web development agency Ones and Zeros in Queenstown, Rob helped his business partner Dave run the New Zealand based Bitcoin exchange NZBCX from 2017 to 2020. He was also a tutor at the Southern Institute of Technology Queenstown Campus from 2013 to 2018
Rob is passionate about Bitcoin and teaching and has combined the two to create "Learn Bitcoin" to help people around New Zealand get a handle on this exciting new technology.
Rob hopes to one day to have the option to pay for goods and services with Bitcoin on a regular basis in New Zealand.
