He is currently the host of The Art of Kindness podcast, as well as a writer for Screen Rant and other publications. Robert is also a social media manager for various clients including the nonprofit WOMEN IN ENTERTAINMENT, which assists women both working in and aspiring to work in the entertainment industry.
A New Jersey native, Robert discovered his love for the arts at a young age, frequently found either putting on shows in his living room or browsing the aisles at Blockbuster. At age 9, Robert made his Off-Broadway debut at the York Theatre and from there was cast in the Broadway musical SEUSSICAL. He has been working in the TV/Film and theatre space ever since, being named "Connecticut's BEST ACTOR" by BroadwayWorld along the way. Some recent highlights include: IFC's KING COBRA, SONY's WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT and NEWSIES at the Westport Country Playhouse.
Robert has been a writer for almost a decade, writing for major publications and shows like: NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Screen Rant, The Huffington Post, Backstage, Writer’s Weekly and, HOLA! USA, where he remains the Head Weekend Editor. Throughout his career Robert has interviewed talent including Oscar-winner Allison Janney, Emmy-winner Sterling K. Brown, Tony-winner Kristin Chenoweth and more.
Most importantly, Robert is intent on giving back. He and his family formed the nonprofit THE THOMAS PETERPAUL FOUNDATION in honor of his late brother Thomas who passed away from cancer. TPF has helped countless pediatric cancer patients and their families since its inception. Robert notably teamed up with Novartis and spoke before congress at the US Capitol on behalf of TPF to get the CAR T Cell Therapy approved (read more in the NY Times). The kindness his family received also inspired his mission for The Art of Kindness.
