Our guest today is Robert Bullock. Robert grew up on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi giving him his southern roots. At an early age, Robert possessed a strong interest in anything fashion related and with his drive and passion he became a successful designer, with an expertise in draping, pattern making, and sewing. His current company, Robert Bullock Bride, has been his most fulfilling business to date, both personally as well as professionally. Robert has lived in NYC for the past 30 years. He is an activist for human rights and equality. He also volunteers at Best Friends Animal Shelter, being an advocate for the animals who need him to fight for their rights as well.
Jonathan and Robert discuss the unusual and amazing connection between the death of Robert's father and his future son. After his father's passing, Robert was looking for a place to just relax and have a few minutes by himself. It was at a local restaurant where Robert met Oscar, who would later become his son.
They discuss how Oscar showed up in New York City and how he and Robert developed a father/son relationship that has changed his life in so many ways. Not thinking he would ever be a father before this, Robert has embraced the fortuitous gift he was given after telling his father (to the sky), "Old man, you better do me right from the other side."
