Originally from Los Angeles and based out of Seattle, WA, Robin has been involved with Playing For Change since its inception.

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.
