When he was a high school senior, Robert was a star athlete with a scholarship to an Ivy League university. However, three months before graduation, he was involved in a terrible car accident. His right leg was shattered, requiring several painful operations and two permanent screws. The doctors told him he would never regain full use of it. His scholarship evaporated, and without it his parents weren’t able to cover tuition.
At this point, Robert could have easily become just another angry, bitter young man. Instead, he applied to SFSU, and was accepted. He split his time between getting a degree in Accounting, and intense physical therapy. Four years later, he walked across the stage with only the aid of a cane to accept his B.A. diploma. After graduation, he worked for several banks in San Francisco, eventually becoming a senior financial officer at Wells Fargo. But he wanted a bigger challenge, so he started a venture capital business. The business, and his reputation, grew until he quit the bank and became self-employed. One of his clients was in reality Lily, the Summer Lady. She was impressed with both his skills and his attitude, and offered him the opportunity to become an Agent of Summer in San Francisco. The price, of course, was allegiance to Summer. This was the challenge he had been looking for, he realized, and he accepted.
