Robbie grew up in Durham, NC. He attended Durham School of the Arts, where he studied classical choir. He did his under graduate education at University of North Carolina at Asheville in the mountains and studied environmental science so he could learn about earth's ecosystems and spend more time outside. While in Asheville, he learned how to white water kayak and rock climb. During the summer, he was a white water raft guide on the French Broad River.
After finishing college, he left the country to travel for four months throughout Central America, volunteering on sustainable gardens and building projects. Upon returning to the United States this past summer, he worked as a camp counselor on a sustainable farm in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. Most recently, Robbie has been working at Squaw Valley as a lift operator.
In his free time he loves snowboarding, hiking, photography and playing the guitar.
