Before teaching, he founded & ran The Creatures of Awareness Theatre Co., a non-profit community theatre group which raised over $10,000 for AIDS foundations & support group; As a published & internationally-recognized visual artist, he has continued to create many works of art, the vast majority of which were in the form of donations for various causes & organizations.

Named for a Kennedy & a King, Robt marched on DC in the womb &

His boots have always been on the ground, both literally & figuratively.
