Guest Monologist: Robert Anderson
Robert Anderson is a Houston native. After receiving a Bachelor's of Science in physics from The University of Texas, he returned home. In the years since, the Mensa member has made a career designing experiments and experimental apparatus for some of the largest corporations in the world. But, despite priding himself on his literal genius, he is the first to admit that he can be a complete idiot, and those are his favorite stories to share.
