Robert HamelAccount Executive

Robert grew up in Connecticut, but ever since he visited Los Angeles with his family, as a kid, he was sold on SoCal! As soon as he graduated college in 1996, he moved to San Diego, where he surfed, played drums in a ska/funk band, and sold copiers B2B.

The band and Robert moved to Los Angeles in 2001, where they immediately DIS-banded. Around the same time, he began his career in television, eventually working as a producer on dozens of TV shows.  In 2013 he leveraged those experiences into a career in business development with creative agencies and production companies.
