Originally from Los Angeles and based out of Seattle, WA, Robin has been involved with Playing For Change since its inception.
If you look closely you can see him at the beginning of the “Stand By Me” video where Rodger Ridley is playing Robin’s guitar.

As an advocate of arts education and its importance to our future generations, Robin works as a mentor for “at risk youth” at S.A.S. Alternative High School in Bothell, WA.
