Robert fell in love with performing at a very early age. Even in high school, he was considered a top entertainer. From there, he began a relationship with one of the top amusement parks in the nation, Six Flags Over Texas, which would eventually span over thirty years. In the late seventies, while everyone else was riding the disco wave, Robert was working in the film industry in Los Angeles and studied acting and directing at the Beverly Hills Playhouse with noted director, Milton Katselas. He worked as a stunt performer, actor, emcee and print model, and was a top-rated performer for a nationally recognized nightclub chain, and even a Knight at Medieval Times dinner theatre.
Robert continued to build his impressive resume in the nineties. He was an intricate part of the “Dueling Pirates” shows at the new MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and directed their “MGM Scream Park” for two years. He directed two productions for the Dixie Stampede dinner theatre in three states. Back in L.A., he continued to perform in feature films (The Mask) and television shows (Beverly Hills 90210, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Babylon 5, Adventures of Briscoe County), then he returned to Six Flags Over Texas to direct three different Batman stunt shows that wowed audiences for over ten years. When the Batman run was finished, Six Flags asked Robert to develop a show that would celebrate Texas pride. The result was “Rangers and Outlaws, a Texas Ranger Wild West Adventure” a western stunt show unparalleled throughout the industry that ran for six years. Robert also has produced “Fright Fest” for Six Flags Over Texas for 14 years.
