JOURNALIST. PRODUCER. PHOTOGRAPHER. EDITOR. DRONE PILOT. FRIEND.
Robert Zepeda is a Californian by heart and a New Yorker by chance. Working since he was 15 years old, he is a self-proclaimed workaholic. In fact he often wonders if his future children will ever see him...now that's deep! However, you can always catch a smile on his face and is often told he is a breath of fresh air...far from the LA smog that surrounded him growing up.
His segments have been featured on ABC, Fusion, HLN and OWN. Some of the same segments have also gone viral; Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, Perez Hilton and NewNowNext bloggers have all helped to make them sharable and viral to millions more online.
And when breaking news hits, he often jumps into action for ABC's 20/20. From the Japanese Tsunami to death of Whitney Houston, it's all hands on deck. Even essential during the "Superstorm Sandy" coverage, where he and his team won a coveted Peabody Award for their reporting.
Active on social media, Robert never goes a moment without thinking of his next post or how to capture the perfect picture on his iPhone..."selfies" included.
