Robert Joyner was born in Hampton, Virginia. Robert's childhood was typical of any boy growing up in the pre-Nintendo era. His days were filled with collecting baseball cards, jumping ramps on his rusted-out huffy and playing sandlot football with his older brother.

After graduating high school, Robert was engaged in several entrepreneurial ventures, commercial fishing and ballroom dancing. Yes, imagine practicing the "cha-cha" on the deck of a 100 foot scallop boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean; talk about the good ole' days.
