About Me

Member Since:
July 14, 2011

Robin is Co-Founder/CEO of Thinking Beyond Borders, an educational gap year non-profit. He also serves as Co-Director of the USA Gap Year Fairs, helping to promote the broad range of gap year options to students around the US. He earned a B.A. in International Development Studies from UCLA and an Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Before co-founding TBB, Robin spent ten years in urban and suburban schools, challenging students to question their assumptions about themselves and the world. His goal is to empower future leaders who will solve global issues using their learning with TBB. He also believes the gap year is a critical component to making college a powerful period of learning, and he is working to make the gap year a fundamental step in higher education for every student.
