Robert Bundy is a nationally award-winning writer, editor, and columnist. He has visited 33 countries and more than 300 cities in the last ten years and still gets a charge out of getting his passport stamped. Rob serves as editor-in-chief of TravelersRoundtable.com, and convenes The Travelers Roundtable series on WUWM Public Radio Milwaukee’s Lake Effect with host Mitch Teich. Rob has been a contributing essayist to NPR since 2009.
Rob’s work was recognized by the Folio Eddie Awards for Editorial Excellence four times in 2015 and 2016. He also recently won the Gold Award for Best Travel Feature from the Parenting Media Association, as well as the Silver Award for Best Columnist/Reviewer from the same body. As founding head writer & editor for the critically acclaimed Lemon Magazine, Robert conducted interviews and wrote feature essays on art, design, music, film, and other aspects of popular culture, and was given an Award of Excellence from Communication Arts in 2006 in the Editorial category. Rob also served as associate editor for Lemon’s predecessor, GUM Magazine, and was that publication’s most prolific contributor.
As the former editor-in-chief of Milwaukee Home & Fine Living magazine, Rob wrote about architecture, design, and fine arts, and logged dozens of radio and television appearances in support of the publication. Other work includes honors for his screenwriting at the Austin Heart of Film Festival and the Chicago Film Festival, poetry commissions for The Book of the Prague Marathon, and serving as a staff writer for Chicago’s Second City business theater. A confirmed home-improvement masochist, Rob continues to slowly but surely kill himself restoring a seven-bedroom Victorian house near Milwaukee’s lakefront. Most importantly, he is a support system for an arrogant and willful pug, a radiant, patient wife, and the greatest ten-year-old boy in the world.
