When Robert was young he enjoyed two things – movies and cooking.
He either wanted to be a chef or a writer. His parents disapproved of
both and he found myself on scholarship to Denver University, majoring
in computer science. Much to his dismay college wasn't for him. I had
to go to the school of 'hard knocks where he became frustrated and out
of sync with the world. Dropping out of college landed him a job in fast
food where he quickly worked his way through the food industry. Back in
the Colorado Springs by the fall of 1983, he began working a series of
restaurants from fast food to cafes, using every opportunity to learn
the tricks of the trade.
In 1996 he heard of a place for rent in Old Colorado City
that sounded perfect for an elegant place he wanted to name Gertrude’s.
Through Gertrude’s Robert met Pamela and Juliet, two people who
enjoyed his same love of food and movies.
“I’ve always had a love of the dramatic”,
Robert says. “Brian de Palma’s ‘Dressed To Kill’,
Woody Allen, Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton and the great actors have always
pulled me in.”
He hopes Camille’s Magic will make people stop and
think. “It has so much to offer on so many levels.”
