Robert is a Merchandise Planner for L Brands, a major retailer headquartered in New York City. He received his MBA in 2011 from Stetson University in DeLand, FL and moved to the city immediately afterwards. While attending Stetson he founded, performed with, and arranged for the all men's acapella group, Hat Trick; performed regularly in the premier choral ensemble, Concert Choir; and performed several roles in Stetson University's Opera program. His interest in music began at an early age with church music which led him to enjoy choral singing the most. He was first exposed to barbershop in High School after he was asked to perform baritone in the quartet to his high school's rendition of The Music Man. Unaware of how much grandeur there was to the Harmony Society, he was reacquainted to the art form a year after moving to the city and now considers himself a "lifer." He currently sings lead in the quartet For the Times and plays percussion as a side hobby.
