our team

Meet the folks that work hard every day to deliver an amazing product and service to you.




Robert grew up in a household supported by a “mom and pop” business which inspired his appreciation for entrepreneurship. At an early age, he learned the importance of great customer service, and has turned these early lessons into a passion that is exuded in every business he works with. His focus on sustainable business processes highlights the importance of the customer experience. This holds true whether the customer is the public or an internal department.

Robert has evolved into an expert on system processes and documentation and has developed multiple proprietary tools to enhance business efficiency which have been deployed across industries including oil and gas production and transportation, aviation, and web development.

In addition to his creation of KAStrack, Robert has also invested in and helped to create concepts such as Day Flier, Co-Funded, and Gulf Coast Aviation.

Robert holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University.
