Who is Robert Sepulveda jr?!

I know Robert Sepulveda for seven years, when he modeled for my look book in August of 2009. I adore Robert , tall , very handsome and beautiful male model and one of the nicest fella to me and such class with an old Hollywood glamour...I adore working with him in my designs. Now Robert is a very successful interior designer who will appear on LOGO's newest dating show! Yes, you will see him in My Coffeetable book, since I spoken to him about my project as well!
Robert Sepúlveda Jr. was born February 11, 1983 is a former fashion model from New York, award-winning interior designer, creative director, and LGBTQ activist.
 Sepúlveda was born in San Juan Puerto Rico. He has one older sister, Jennifer, and is the grandson of Spanish immigrants. Sepúlveda grew up in Florida. He received his degree in interior design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale from graduating summa cum laude. 
Sepúlveda began his career at Valley Forge Fabrics, a supplier of decorative upholstery fabrics for the hospitality industry. There, he created and executed interior design schemes for hoteliers. In 2008 Sepúlveda moved to New York, where he began working with fashion houses  Polo Ralph lauren, Rugby Ralph Lauren, Lacoste  and Kenneth Cole,  eventually assuming the role of acting Global Visual Manager of the Calvin Klein Home Collection. 
Sepúlveda has since founded RSJdesign, LLC, his award-winning interior design firm specializing in luxury residential and commercial spaces. Today, the company has grown into a complete lifestyle design firm, offering custom art pieces, luxury candles, home fragrances, as well as maintaining its initial foundation in interior design.

Sepúlveda has been involved in several public outreach initiatives and non-profit organizations. In 2015, he worked with the city of Atlanta with a proposal to launch the Atlanta Rainbow Crosswalks, a historic public art project with the mission of advancing the awareness of diversity and equality through public art and community outreach.
 After more than a year of city meetings, gathering of permits, and raising funds the city approved his proposal and the Atlanta Rainbow Crosswalks was accepted into the city of Atlanta permanent collection of art. The gofundme campaign he started initially had a goal of $20,000.00, but well exceed that with total funds raised being $44,911.00. The project consisted of painting the 10th St. & Piedmont Ave. intersection in downtown Atlanta in the colors of the rainbow flag to spread a visual message of acceptance, unity, and tolerance that represents the diversity of the community.
