Robert’s directing work spans several decades and crosses many disciplines – from stage to screen to recording studio. With commercial and audience successes with plays like Target Audience, Amigo’s Blue Guitar, I Had A Job I Liked Once, Come Good Rain at The Great Canadian Theatre Company, 7 Stories, Chicken Roulette at the National Arts Centre, Judgement and The Mystery of the Oak Island Treasure for the New Theatre of Ottawa among many others, he established a reputation as an ‘actor and audience friendly’ director. After a lengthy hiatus he returned to directing theatre with two productions of Shakespeare’s Will, Vern Theissen’s beautiful one woman show performed by Patricia Tedford.

Over the past three years, Robert has written and directed several radio dramas in association with The Acting Company in Ottawa, partnering with Melinda Roy.

He has also written and directed numerous short films, partnered with Derek Price, produced by The Acting Company; and was Director of the Film and Television Department for five years.
