Robert is our man about campus on a daily basis. His primary role is to gather, develop, and write stories about the everyday life at Middlebury. From the remarkable things students and faculty do, to behind-the-scenes stories about the how the College operates, Robert brings it to life in words and pictures.
After earning a bachelor’s degree from Hamilton College, he was a newspaper reporter and photographer in Massachusetts and New Hampshire for the next 11 years. He came to Middlebury in 1997 as marketing and communications director for the Language Schools and Schools Abroad where, among other things, he coined the tagline “No English Spoken Here.”
“As a cub reporter I learned there’s no excuse for returning to the newsroom empty-handed. My first editor in Chelsea, Mass., used to say: 'There’s a good story out there. Now get out and find it!'"
