He joined the Wise Fool community in 2016 when he attended Elevate and has been hooked ever since. His goal for his time on the Board is to expand community awareness, knowledge, and support of Wise Fool to make sure the organization is around for many years to come.

Roger J Schwarz was born and raised in New York City. He earned a BA in Psychology and Russian History and later acquired a JD and was admitted to the New York Bar. He specialized in criminal defense, and represented many people who lacked funds to hire private lawyers. He relocated to Santa Fe in 2017, where he enjoys film, ballet, hiking and cooking. He became a member of the New Mexico Bar in 2018, and continues to represent mainly poor people in criminal cases. He enjoys meaningful involvement in the Santa Fe local community and sees his affinity for the art, skill and social commitment of the Wise Fool NM Circus as a natural extension of his commitment to social causes and excellence in the performing arts.
