Using his father’s military career of discipline and honor as an example, Robert commenced his professional life at a young age, involving himself in sales during the summers away from school. Robert honed his skills in sales at Sutro & Company selling Certificates of Deposits. 1993 was a career change for Robert; he met an acquaintance at college who was employed with a well-known corporation involved in international automobile trade. It was within this arena of international commerce that Robert discovered his passion: importing and exporting automobiles. Robert’s talents granted him the position of lead broker in trading luxury automobiles in the Asian market. Due to unfavorable market conditions, however, Robert decided to utilize his talents and create his own organization that highlighted a niche area. After building this venture, Robert eventually became the largest importer of US brand automobiles in Italy.
In addition to his success in international commerce, Robert desired to cultivate business opportunities in the United States and did so by partnering with an expert in the fields of precious metals and crude oil. In 2010, Lustrous Metals, LLC and Smart Money Commodities, LLC were born. Lustrous Metals, LLC was later sold in August 2011 to a silver mining consortium. Robert continued with the success of Smart Money Commodities, LLC, investing in petroleum projects within Texas. In late 2011, Robert enrolled his Son into Pee-Wee football, while at the sporting goods store he noticed the compression shorts for his son had yellow padding in them. The yellow color made him think about Kevlar fabric. A few months later Robert had his first prototype ballistic underwear. Robert built that into multimillion dollar business with a 20,000 sq ft. factory to build all sorts of tactical products for Police and Military pros. In October 2016 Robert sold Armour Wear LLC and is currently a polished speaker on Blockhain and Crypto currency. He has been apart of various successful ICOs while helping these companies with tokenomics and the launch of these incredible projects.
