Robert has personal knowledge of the pain and destruction caused by these issues. He has an amazing story of spiritual awakening, redemption and a journey to full recovery from chronic depression and mental illness.
Early in his adult life, he accomplished a successful career in film and television, financing and producing numerous productions and films. Along with the success came the stresses of running a publicly traded corporation, producing, financing, managing employees, successes and failures.
By age 46, these issues had taken everything from Robert including his marriage, children, business, and home. Alcohol had also taken its toll on his health. In 2010, Robert was told by doctors that he would not live the day. That his liver had failed completely and there were no other options available. Finding himself homeless, broken, defeated, and standing on death's door, he experienced the miracle of a spiritual awakening and the power of a higher power for the first time in his life.
Robert fully recovered and went back to College at Purdue University pursuing his Master's Degree of Psychology in Addiction at Purdue University. He is active in the recovery community.
