Born in 1947 in East Orange, New Jersey, Robert met his wife Evelyn in high school, reuniting 40 years later. Since 2012, they have lived in Johnstown, Pennsylvania where Robert has served on the Inclined Plane for three years as an Operator, including raising support to preserve this “Jewel of Johnstown,” as Robert calls it.
Robert studied philosophy at Monmouth College (now Monmouth University) before hitting the road with his rock band. These experiences as an aspiring rock star gave Robert the idea of creating On Tour® The Board Game in 1985. The game gives participants the thrill of forming a garage band and going on tour with the goal of making to the top of the Billboard charts.
Although Robert’s last name sounds French, he is of Irish-Welsh decent and was raised in an Italian family after he and his sister, Lori, were adopted as the ages of 6 and 9, respectively.
