Video games have always been a part of Robert's life but after his injury he found them hard to access. This sparked his interest in creating video games that people with a variety of disabilities could play. He received a scholarship to attend the video game design conference in San Jose, California in 2006. In 2007, Robert graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh online and received a bachelors degree in video game art and design. Since then, he has been an advocate for accessible games. He had the opportunity along with 22 other volunteer game designers, to create a video game with legendary game developer David Perry who created games such as Earth Worm Jim and all of The Matrix games. Robert has appeared in various articles and interviews speaking about game accessibility. Today, Robert continues his art career working for the Association of Foot and Mouth Painting Artists and plans to create a video game in the near future to go along with the new children's book that he wrote and illustrated.
