Rob Perillo is a native of New York, but he and Neomi now call Acadiana home and have raised their family here. You can usually find Rob and Neomi out-and-about in Acadiana (during normal, non-pandemic times) at festivals, Downtown Alive - any gathering that allows them to delve deeper into the local culture.
Rob has been helping keep Acadiana safe for over 30 years, giving us plenty of information about the weather in the area and doing his best to keep us safe. He is also VERY knowledgeable about all things space-related.
Good luck, Rob: you have our vote!
