We had the good fortune of connecting with Robert House and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Robert, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Everything evolves around taking risk. In nature the baby birds have to take the risk of testing out their wings by jumping out the nest. That’s pretty much like someone taking the risk of getting out their shell or their comfort zone to discovering a new career or hobby, but also like the bird you have to have confidence in yourself. Taking risk has played a big part in my life. There’s always a risk of failure but when you let the good things out weigh the bad good things will continue to happen.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art is photography. A couple of things that set me apart from others is my ability to learn and absorb knowledge like a sponge. I got to where I am today professionally by trying new things and being creative with a passion for photography and making videos. It wasn’t easy but I’m still not where I want to be. I want to learn new things and master that then learn something else. I want the world to know me as a someone who’s a perfectionist to their craft.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If one of my good friends came into town, I’d most likely take them to an Atlanta Hawks game. I would take them there because my friends and I enjoy sporting events and each others company. Some of the most interesting things to do in my opinion is to go to the city and walking around and finding things you’ve never seen before whether it’s new graffiti or different food spots to eat at.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My mom for sure. She’s always been my #1 supporter. She was always at games, paying for a trainer, motivating me to do better and always in my corner. Without my momma, I’m not the man I am today.
