Chief Creative Officer
Standing at 6 foot 3 inches tall, Robert represents a leonine presence in the hallowed halls of Copycat. Having run away from his overly disciplinarian parents just a few weeks after his birth, he spent his formative years on a Shaghaiese sludge barge, hunting rats and reading Dostoyevsky. By the age of seven he’d left the sea for good to take up a fledgling, yet profitable, residence in the slums of Hong Kong. There, amidst the flotsam and jetsam of the Far East, he found his true calling as a writer. Poems, short stories, random scribbles, these were his bread and butter for over a decade.
Though reports vary on the extent of his stay in the People’s Republic of China, what is known is that by his eighteenth year he had traveled to Loyola Marymount University in the State of California to begin his studies in Classical Civilizations. After earning his degree with some honors, Rob did what most young writers in Los Angeles do and composed a screenplay. This did not go over so well and after his first, second and thirteenth failed attempts, something happened that would change his life forever. He began to write copy. Not just any copy either; well-researched, thoroughly unique and creatively geared copy. Copy written for the modern reader living in the modern world. Since joining Copycat, his fourteenth screenplay, entitled Soil, has been optioned and is slated to start filming in January 2018. Rob is immensely pleased by this, but has decided to appear relatively humble about it.
