Robert O’Shaughnessy


I am an Associate at Peppercomm, where I work on a diverse set of accounts such as: MINI, Wilbur-Ellis, TGI Fridays and Pirelli.

I started at Peppercomm as a summer intern, where I learned how agencies work. Prior to that, I worked for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority doing communications and public outreach for the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project—the largest infrastructure project in the United States at the time. Given my interest in transportation, I also interned at the US Department of Transportation. While studying political communication at The George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs, I was a public programs assistant at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. At GW, I minored in journalism and ran the news department for the college radio station, bringing all the shows to podcasts for the first time.

Growing up in Connecticut makes me New Englander at heart. Currently, I live in the Sunset District of San Francisco.

A sense of humor means:

Appreciating the absurdities of the world we live in.
