Roberts is best known for his feature directorial debut, The Kings of Summer, which screened at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

In his acceptance speech, Roberts said he was humbled and honoured by the 3-year appointment saying he would do his utmost to fulfil the duties of the position and help promote tourism in Vietnam.
