Cross Continent MBA | Class of 2015


I am originally from Wilmington, Delaware, lived for several years in San Francisco, and just recently moved to Taipei. My background is primarily in biotechnology research science—developing new models for experimentation in cancer therapy—but more recently was lured away to work in the technology startup world, developing processes and product offerings while helping build small business infrastructure.

I love efficient design, good copy, and having a role which requires creativity on a daily basis. My personal passions include music (writing, playing, recording), food-centric world travel, and linguistics. I am currently struggling my way towards Mandarin Chinese fluency while living on this beautiful island and loving every minute of it.

Robert was a Cross Continent MBA student prior to the program's merger with the Global Executive MBA program.
