Robert is a retired US Army physician. He met his wife, Melissa, and served most of his active duty years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. They have two adult children. Robert has always pursued a wide range of fitness with a bit of zeal. After concentrating on cycling for a decade and tennis for a different decade, a friend recommended CrossFit. Channeling his Neurology and Neuro-ophthalmology medical training, Robert enjoys the constant variation in CrossFit but also likes to focus some concentrated time to develop specific physical skills. He has taught at many levels including middle school, high school, college, medical school, and post-graduate medical education. Since 2010, Robert and Melissa have sought medical education opportunities in developing countries. After retiring, Robert obtained his CF Level 1 certificate and avidly trained for Open competitions.
