After completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree, Rob's international tennis career took precedence.

Whilst competing overseas he was inspired by the music and vibrant rhythms of the different cultures and communities that he experienced. The memory of these rhythms led him to Latin & Arabian dance & drumming.

Realising that rhythm is an essential part of an athlete's development, Rob instigated the Rhythm in Sports programs. Rob's first hand experiences of professional sport and rhythm has led him to appreciate the value of rhythm-based activities in developing confidence, a sense of camaraderie and for the release of stress. Rob now manages, facilitates and plays percussion for Drum Beats.
