About

Robin went to prison once … to interview the disgraced former president of Taiwan.

That wasn’t nearly as scary as the time he accidentally locked himself in the bathroom of an Airbnb in Athens.

Robin’s life has taken him to some pretty unexpected places, but it’s not the places that interest him as much as the people he meets and the stories they have to tell. As Newsroom Innovation Chief at the Wall Street Journal, Robin leads a team of developers and designers exploring the future of news and journalism.

Figuring that out has meant learning how to code, how to design, and how to help other people become their best selves.
