Robert found his future calling at the age of 13, when he first designed lighting for his school’s theater productions. His education continued at the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, where he pursued an MFA in Lighting and discovered his passion for video and projection design. Drawing upon his background in theatrical lighting and his love of music, modern art and cinema, he has collaborated with designers to create video content spanning all genres of live performance and for venues including the San Francisco Opera, Wolf Trap Opera, the New York City Ballet, and Carnegie Hall. Outside the theatre, he is an avid lover of 19th century French poetry, film photography and fixed-gear bicycles.
