ABOUT ROBERT

Working as a guide in Spain & Portugal means five to six months of travel every year… a wonderful opportunity to deepen his knowledge of the Iberian peninsula. His main interests—whether for work or for fun—are history & architecture. He’s been a biochemist, worked in container shipping and even taught himself Android programming. What’s next?

    • Born in Jacksonville but raised in Memphis, Robert moved to Seattle after college where he almost eliminated his southern accent. Almost. He worked as a toxicologist thanks to studying biochem, shipped containers to Asia after receiving a Master’s degree in International Studies and later ditched everything to move to Spain.

    MEMPHIS

    • Moving to Cádiz turned out to be one of the best decisions he ever made. Learning local Spanish was far from easy, but after a year he was hooked. Back in Seattle, Robert looked for other places to continue speaking Spanish… and ended up in Argentina.

    CÁDIZ

    • At the same time, Robert began working as a tour guide and guidebook researcher for Rick Steves in Europe while maintaining residency in Argentina. The result was a life spread over several continents since 2000. Add a seven-month stay in Sydney with his best friend for even more craziness.

    BUENOS AIRES

    • During his time off, Robert set up several walking tours of Buenos Aires. They were a big success, trailblazing the way for other expats to do the same. His in-depth info from those tours is now available to everyone on this webpage in the form of city guides or as blog posts.

    TOURS

    • After 14 years in Argentina, Robert spent a year back in Seattle then moved to sunny Sevilla in 2016. He is currently writing a Catholic heritage guide for Lisbon and wondering what adventures are next!

    SEVILLA

    • Although Robert is not currently looking for work, it never hurts to have a CV handy. See his LinkedIn profile (icon at the bottom of this page) or send him an email if you would like to discuss a project.
