MY BACK STORY

I am Robyn. I am a writer based in Mexico City, but I often travel around the world with my husband and baby daughter. I write about sub-cultures, entrepreneurs, mental health and gender issues.  

 

Before journalism, I worked in Finance and Tech as a project manager and consultant for large organizations and startups for over a decade. I mix both lives these days - a bit of the old and the new. My goal is to tell emotional human stories that matter. I am also interested in media innovation and how technology can bridge gaps in news-making and storytelling. 

For the past few years, my reporting has focussed on issues in Afghanistan, Mexico and Ukraine. I have been privileged enough to write for publications like the New York Times, Washington Post, and TIME Magazine. 

 

I don't often write about myself, but when I do, it's about my struggles with mental health issues. They combine reflections and journeys around the world. I am bipolar and an advocate for finding one's way.
