Born and raised in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles, Robert descends from several generations of proud Native Americans and Angelenos. After attending the University of Southern California, Robert began his career in the Movie and Television Industry holding management positions at notable Hollywood Post Production facilities such as Technicolor, The Post Group, Complete Post, Matchframe Video, Cinema Research Corporation and Video Transitions Robert recently served 13 years as Manager of Production Application Development and Design for the National Football League at the NFL Network where he was responsible for On-Air production software and re-designing the NFL Networks Telestration software for remote and in-game laptop use. Robert also served as a Committee Co-Chair on the National Football League’s Diversity Council.

Robert’s full-time focus and dedication is now to provide access to Professional athletes, Technology/Education experts, industry contacts, resources and exposure for Indigenous youth in addition to proudly serving the Native American Community.
My hope is to bring my experience in television broadcasting and sports to the Indigenous communities. Possible examples are a broadcast bootcamp and sporting opportunities in television. Any way that I can encourage our youth to succeed I will!
