Lost Shores Gallery was started in 2015 in an effort to promote the stunning beauty of our hidden paradise. Before long, a drone was added to bring our oceanfront to life as never before. It rapidly became apparent that these images touched hearts both local and the many live-aways hungry for a taste of back home. The images are shared freely through the popular Lost Shores Gallery Facebook page.
‘Art-in-Motion’ is Rob’s favorite medium as evidenced by the success of his Lost Shores Gran Fondo cycling events, the Lost Shores Thunder Rally and more recently the CADA Bluenose Challenge. Done purely as volunteer efforts to promote our community, he enjoys the challenge of assembling operating and marketing plans all in the spirit of the 2014 Ivany Report, ‘work with what you got’.
Rob has deep local roots in the area where he and Beverley live in a restored 1910 family home overlooking Philips Harbour and Chedabucto Bay. They also enjoy time at their nearby cottage at ‘Secret Beach’ where his family first settled 200 years ago.
Rob went to school in the Annapolis Valley and spent his summers here on the Lost Shores. He earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering at University of Waterloo where he met Beverley. His career began in recycling followed by operational roles producing most of Canada’s intravenous solutions. He followed this with an assignment in Los Angeles leading the startup of a large human plasma fractionation facility. A bucket list wish to live in San Francisco lead to a senior management role developing and producing advanced biologic medicines.
In 2010, Rob decided it was time to exit the corporate life and return to his roots in Nova Scotia. That gave him more time to enjoy his passions for bicycling, photography and home renovations. Rob holds licenses as a Professional Engineer, Dept of Environment Qualified Professional, Realtor® and Transport Canada Drone Pilot.
