Storyteller, keynote speaker and author, Robert’s checkered past includes balancing fatherhood with careers in two very different technical fields. Out of college he became an earth scientist. Many years later, he practiced law. He knows what it’s like to work in a demanding environment. Along the way he encountered layoff, depression, and divorce. Inspired by the beauty, legends, and myth of ancient Greece, Robert overcame these conditions to become an expert at managing change and aging well. Today, he writes, delivers keynotes, and tells stories about the search for happiness, the power of commitment, and the wisdom and beauty of ancient Greece.
Robert has performed on “The Story Project” for Radio KRCC 91.5 FM. His latest book, Icarus and the Wing Builder, is a page-turning work of mythological fiction about an ordinary man who discovers direction and purpose while overcoming adversity. As a speaker, he educates, entertains and inspires audiences all over the world to find their own voice and take action, to extend their reach beyond their grasp and in the direction of their dreams.
