Rob Buchholz grew up in Reno, Nevada, in a family centered around construction and art. His father and grandfather were both carpenters while his mother and grandmother were both oil painters. Rob attended college at California State University, Chico where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Business. During the summer months Rob would work with his father and learned the fundamentals of construction and consequently how to engineer and build projects -skills that would later allow him to work in San Francisco as a project manager working on high-rise buildings. During this time, Rob became more interested in creating his own original art installations.
Drawing from his interest in art and construction, he found he had the perfect blend of creativity and professional know-how to bring his imagination to life. Rob brings 9 years of experience combining his aesthetic vision, structural knowledge and craftsmanship to every project. Working in the medium of stainless steel, polystyrene, structural concrete, and mosaics, Rob Buchholz pushes the boundaries of scale and brings his aesthetic vision to life. Rob is especially talented with installations involving challenging logistics. Often known for making the impossible possible. Embodying a range of treatments and materials, Rob’s experiential works enrich the world with his view of where pretty meets raw.
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
