Unaware that barbershop was an option as a musical outlet after high school, Robert was employed by "It's Showtime Productions" and was a member of their N*Sync cover band. Music has always been a passion and has become a mainstay in his life. Roberts' work life moved him to Toronto, at that point he knew he was going to audition for and sing with the Toronto Northern Lights, and has done so for more than 15+ years. Robert serves as the head performance coach for the Northern Lights and has won numerous international medals with the chorus including Gold in 2013. Robert has performed all over the world including China, Sweden, Germany, England, The Netherlands, USA, and Canada.

Robert is a sought after coach for Quartets and Choruses all over the globe, and is the 2018 winner of the Larry Dale Coach Of The Year Award. He enjoys working with all levels of performers to use their own organic feelings to build genuine, heartfelt, and believable performances, allowing them the chance to honour their music and to take the audiences on an emotional journey. Robert has achieved a major goal in barbershop by becoming and currently is a Performance Judge for the Barbershop Harmony Society.
