has been a police officer with the Toronto Police Service since 1990. In all those years, Robert saw first-hand what the horrors of drug addiction can do to individuals, families and communities. Together, he and Mike Carparelli started MUSIC! Not Mischief in 2008 to give young people in Toronto an opportunity to invest in themselves through guitar lessons and the mentorship of police officers. When the majority of kids in Canada leave high school having had the recreational drug-use experience, MUSIC! Not Mischief and the officers that work in the program tell participants that real rock 'n' roll rebellion is drug free. The only way to ensure that kids don't end up in the cycle of addiction is to give them a reason to never start.
Robert currently holds the rank of Detective Constable and serves as the Crime Analyst in the Detective Operations branch of the Toronto Police Service's 11 Division.
At the MUSIC! Not Mischief Year 8 finale, Robert kicked off the show with a marriage proposal to the beautiful Kelly, something witnessed by the entire MUSIC! Not Mischief family.
