His body of work has been recognized in over 300 festival, stage, book and screenplay competitions around the world (over 170 of those were finalist or better). The finalist or better placements include book, screen and stage play successes in Faulkner/Wisdom Creative Writing contest, Norumbego Fiction Award, Chesterfield, Writer's Network, Dana Awards, Frontiers in Writing, SFWP (Santa Fe), etc. Of these, Robert has won 27 contests and came in 2nd place in 19 others (e.g., Spirit Quest, Breckenridge, Telluride, Fade In Magazine, Garden State Film Festival, etc.) His short play was produced at the BaCCA Performing Arts Center at a One Act Festival on Long Island, and his longer stage plays won a reading series at Abingdon Theatre in NYC and Ohio State University and, when his writing buddy joined the mix, one of his manuscripts won the stage play category in the London Film Awards, the Chicago Screenplay Contest, and American Movie Awards.
