Robert collaborates across genres and formats and brings a deliberately versatile, story-centric enthusiasm to all his work. He loves working with smart, passionate people and getting involved as early as possible.
He believes in the virtue of a good challenge.
Robert worked on the first three Kanye West YEEZY launches, first as an editor and finally as a creative director of the Clio Award winning livestream for the sold out Madison Square Garden YEEZY Season 3 + Life of Pablo album launch, which reached 765 sold out cinemas in 26 countries and over 20m small screens via Tidal. His work as lead editor on the Alexander Wang x H&M launch was featured in the Webby Fifty while the PBS docudrama American Experience: The Poisoner's Handbook earned a 2015 Emmy nomination. He also led the post-production team and served as creative consultant for the Balmain x H&M launch. Prior work has earned several Telly Awards while the narrative shorts he wrote and/or edited and/or produced while earning his MFA in filmmaking at Columbia University played festivals from Toronto to TriBeCa.
His work as an editor and creative has paved the way for his recent leap into directing with back-to-back campaign films for Yohji Yamamoto's Adidas imprint, Y-3 and launch films for Beats x Alexander Wang and Jonathan Simkhai x Carbon38.
Robert has a BA in English literature from Williams College and an MFA in filmmaking from Columbia University.
