He attended Sandia High School and was an active member in sports offered through the high school. He played two years of basketball, as well as football all four years of attendance. Robert was a three-year letterman on the varsity football team for the Sandia Matadors. Upon completion of high school, Robert went on to attend the University of New Mexico. At first his major was in that of Mathematics. Robert soon realized that he needed to narrow his career path and degree plan while at the University of New Mexico. With strong interest in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), Robert decided to go into the Construction Industry/course curriculum. This was due in part to its mixture of all STEM related topics, as well as the great team aspect of design and building that Robert takes great interest and pride in. Robert was able to pay for his entire college career with scholarships and no outside financial help. With the help of the New Mexico lottery scholarship and the FASFA, Robert ended up graduating from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelors Degree of Science in Construction Management.
