About Me in 273 Words

Robert “Rex” Schuller started his professional life at age 12 in the basement of the local science museum, dressed in a white lab coat and teaching visitors basic physics principles using toys.

By the time he was 18, he had toured internationally with the Houston Boys Choir, studied art and photography at the Glassell School, had worked on-air at three radio stations and one television station, and had graduated from Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.

In college, he worked in the loss prevention department of a theme park and got his first exposure to what would become a contemporaneous career in accounting, auditing, and employee fraud and theft investigation.

After earning a psychology degree from the University of Houston, he went to work for an equipment and vehicle leasing company. Starting out as the runner’s assistant, he worked his way through credit investigator and finance manager to, ultimately, chief financial officer. Along the way, he became a Certified Internal Auditor and Certified Public Accountant, and started a consulting side-business in 1999.

His first step in reclaiming a creative life was to train as a voice-over actor.  He started a production company side-business in 2002, and has since tackled creative projects with a vengeance: he learned to spin fire and stilt-walk, though not at the same time… yet; he apprenticed under an award-winning art car artist; and founded an old-school burlesque troupe. He even picked up a stage name.

Now known as the “Well-Balanced” Arts Accountant, he helps artists, performers, and writers hone their business skills & maximize their success by using both his artistic right-brain and his analytical left-brain.
