Robert Cheek was born in Maryland and works in the music industry in Los Angeles. While working as an attorney in Maryland in 2012, Rob participated in National Novel Writing Month and finally completed his long-planned novel. This began a love of writing which has expanded from novels to screenplays, teleplays, short stories, and poetry. In 2014, he partnered with long-time friend Cory Baker and began the O The Anthem podcast and brand; supporting its short films, web-series, podcast network, and more. At one point, Rob was participating in three weekly podcasts and publishing books bi-yearly.
After reading a book recommended by Cory while on vacation, Rob returned to Maryland determined to move west to pursue content production and writing. In November of that year, they relocated across the country. Quickly finding a job in the music industry, Robert now spends his days supporting up-and-coming artists and uses his free time to continue to produce screenplays, produce short-form video content, and build his Movement novel universe.
