Robert attended undergraduate at the University of Southern Indiana, and law school at Indiana University. Upon graduation from law school, he could have taken a job in the state capital, Indianapolis, but knew the tri-state was the only place in Indiana he wanted to call his home. After a few years of working in local Evansville boutique firms, Robert took a job as in-house litigation counsel for a Fortune 100 insurance company. After a couple years working for one of the largest insurance companies in the world, he accepted his current role representing the people of Indiana, western Kentucky, and Illinois.
Robert currently resides in Evansville with his wife, Brittani, a local western Kentucky girl, and their child.
