Hi, I'm Rob D. 


I'm a city manager and local government enthusiast with roots in planning, research, recreation, and entrepreneurship.


Before transitioning to a career in municipal government, I spent time as a military intelligence soldier, salesman, marketing consultant, and small business owner. I graduated from Humboldt State University with a B.S. in Environmental Management & Protection (Natural Resources Planning) and an M.S. in Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences. I am currently enrolled in the MBA and MSDM (master of security and disaster management) programs at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and on track to graduate May 2023 from both programs.
