He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2004, and spent the majority of his enlistment at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He deployed to Iraq for 12 months during operation Iraqi Freedom in 2007.

Robert’s focus is now on journalism, at the school he dreamt of attending as a teenager growing up in Yonkers, New York. Now his dream has become a reality, and he is ready to make the most of this amazing opportunity.
His dream is to become a baseball play-by-play announcer, and hopefully one day work for his favorite team, the New York Mets.
