It was whilst he was working as a carpenter in 2000 that Rob was approached to be a presenter on Live This! a lifestyle programme for Channel 10, which went through until 2001.Rob then started on Better Homes and Gardens and also did a stint on the Channel 7 DIY program House Calls To The Rescue with Johanne Griggs.
