About Robert

Robert was a 2020 HUMANITAS Prize’s New Voices winner, further developing his winning pilot script Tucked under the mentorship of Winnie Holzman (writer/creator of My So-Called Life, Wicked). He was also recently named as a winner of this year’s A-List, an annual competition honoring the best work by assistants in the entertainment industry. In 2019, Robert won the CineStory TV Fellowship, through which he was mentored by Joey Slamon (showrunner of TruTV’s I’m Sorry).

Robert’s work has also recently been recognized, most notably, as a finalist for the Austin Film Festival, the Final Draft Big Break Competition, Tracking Board’s Pilot Launch Pad Competition, and as a semifinalist for the ABC Disney Television Writing Program.

Since arriving in Los Angeles, Robert has also worked as the legal assistant on sixteen films, including the Academy Award nominees Mudbound, Isle of Dogs, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. He currently works at Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson LLP as a legal assistant covering clients such as Greg Berlanti, Pamela Adlon, Gloria Calderon-Kellett, Tanya Saracho, Gabrielle Union, and Freddie Highmore.

In addition to his professional and creative pursuits, Robert has volunteered as a crisis service counselor with the Trevor Project, the nation’s leading suicide prevention and crisis intervention service for LGBTQ youth.
