A long-time resident of the west coast, Robin has lived in California, Oregon, and Washington. At Puget Sound, he played trumpet in the Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Orchestra, and was part of several student-run organizations. After graduating in 2004 with a B.A. in History and a minor in German, Robin moved to Frankfurt, Germany where he taught English at the Eduard-Spranger-Schule on a Fulbright grant. In 2007 he moved to Chicago in order to pursue his M.A. in Social Science, culminating in a master’s thesis examining the political development of the Swiss Confederation in the fourteenth century in the context of broader trends in the Holy Roman Empire.

In his spare time, Robin plays trumpet in the Tacoma Concert Band and serves on the board of directors for the Puget Sound Youth Wind Ensemble.
