Robert Van Roo

Robert Van Roo joined The Center Board in 2015. A California native, Van Roo was born in San Jose and is a photographer by trade, now turned alternative medicine activist. As a photographer his career began early in his teens after exhibiting in fine art museums both nationally and internationally.Van Roo developed an interest in medical cannabis as a result of a friend’s illness whose immune system was unable to tolerate the pesticides and molds common in the marketplace. He volunteered space in his photography studio and warehouse in San Francisco to help facilitate a clean and safe medication for his friend. Up to this point Robert had no idea that his career path would soon take another route.
Between his friends experience and his own Van Roo’s career path began to split from photography as he became active working with dispensaries throughout California. Moving to Palm Springs in 2011, he is now President & Co-Founder of Palm Springs Safe Access, a medical cannabis dispensary. The desert landscape inspires his artistic desires with a thriving art community that continues to grow.
