Born with fibular hemimelia, Robert underwent amputation of his right leg below-the-knee at just 10 months old.
Growing up wasn’t easy for Robert as he experienced many personal tragedies other than his limb loss, but he didn’t give up and chose to see the positive in life. He is now married with two children and founded his own organization and Stand Up Amputee Basketball Team Limb Possible. He currently works as a Community Care Coordinator at Hanger Clinic in the NY Metro area and also travels across the country as a motivational speaker. A gifted athlete, he is a player on the USA Amputee Soccer Team, is a Para Spartan competitor, and is preparing for his new journey, triathlons.
Robert has appeared on TV shows such as “American Ninja Warrior,” “Ink Masters,” “Returning The Favor,” “Fosse,” and more. In 2019, his life documentary titled “Able,” was nominated for an Emmy.
His message is to “Lead With Love,” and “Anything’s Possible.”
