After graduating high school in a rural town in Indiana, Robert enlisted in the Marine Corps as an Artilleryman and served two tours overseas, one to Iraq and one to Afghanistan. After finishing his time in the military, Robert moved to Denver with a friend from the military due to his passion for being outside. Robert then moved to Fort Collins to finish his Bachelor’s degree in Turf Management. After finishing his degree at Colorado State University he started a job near Vail Colorado working at a very prestigious golf course. When Robert is not at work (which is a rare occurrence) he is organizing trips for friends to go rock or ice climbing around the state of Colorado.
