I am currently the Deputy Agency Chief Contracting Officer (Deputy ACCO); a position I have held for 15 years. I have worked for the city as a manager for ten years, and have worked in city government for over twenty-one years, and am extremely knowledgeable about New York City’s rules and regulations regarding agency managers and administrative personnel, as well as overall city agency procurement policy and procedures. Academically I possess an Executive Masters degree in Public Administration from Baruch College, and a Bachelor of Arts from the College of New Rochelle.


I am the President of T “Flip” R, LLC, a talent agency formed, on May 1, 2008, with my son Trevor “Flip” Robinson (Vice President and Artist). The mission of Flip is to assist Not-for-Profit Organizations, Small Business, and Corporation with their community, national and international charitable initiatives. . Its program, “Inter-Boro H-Pop Artists”, goal is to bring together Hip Hop and Pop Artists to perform and provide voluntary services, in the name of non-violence, to their communities and nationwide.


Recently we’ve embarked on another initiative called “Quiet Room Battles”, an idea constructed by QueenzFlip AKA Mr. Bias, is concept of a battle setting: Round 1 and Round 2 only the performers in the room without an audience. The audience hears the battle via audio equipment in another room. Round 3 – The performers has the option to ask the audience to come into the room to see the battle, if Battlers agree. The goal of our program is to bring together Artists to perform and/or provide voluntary services, in a non-violence arena. Many want fame; however, they understand in order to reach their destiny they have to make positive impacts on their lives as well as the lives of others. The organization was created as a venue to bring these young artists together to seek their destiny while helping others fore-fill theirs.


Recently, I’ve co-created/co-authored and published a book called “Inside Da G” (Trevor Flip Robinson – author). The book is a no-holds barred relationship-guide based on the experiences of a young man in today’s society. The book is available in for Kindles or can be purchase on the following website:



Beyond my professional responsibilities I am the Chapter Director of the Municipal Chapter of New York City Managerial Employees Association (NYC MEA); Co-Chair of Outreach Coalition of the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Greater New York Chapter and a member of the NIGP-New York, Inc. [The New York Metropolitan Area Organization of Public Purchasing Professionals affiliated with the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing] for some nine-plus years and have attended monthly meetings, putting forth my ideas and contributing in other meaningful ways. In addition, the Director of the Special Events for Mercedes for NY City Council 2013 – District #46.
I am also a member of several community service organizations, including the following:


• I am a member of the American Red Cross Greater New York, Brooklyn Disaster Action Team (August 2005 – present). I provide assistance to clients during the time of disaster (fires, building collapse, etc.) in the five boroughs of New York City.

Finally, I held the role of Volunteer Partner to the Director of Contract and Compliance Unit of Disaster Services Department at the Greater New York Chapter.

With more than 500 families enrolled in our programs, it is more important than ever, especially post earthquake aftermath, that the organization provide basic humanitarian needs, such as shelter life, promoting basic education; mentor program, nutrition and medical care needs to those Haitian children. Moreover, create sustainable programs to empower individuals and their family who are seeking a better life. As a Volunteer Partner, my roles include, but are not limited to, procurement of supplies, logistics, planning and event coordination.

• January 12, 2010 Haiti was devastated by a massive earthquake that leads to the death of approximately 250,000 individuals and left millions of residence homeless and in need of food, water and medical services.

Since the earthquake, I traveled to Haiti on three separate occasion, with three separate teams, each trip included members of the Haitian American Visionaries for Humanity, Inc (HAVA); to help set up “make shift” clinics and provide food and medical services in Leogane, Correfour and Petit Gaove. During these trips; we, collectively, helped approximately 2,700 clients.
