Robbie has been obsessed with movies from an early age. More weekends than not as a kid were spent going through a stack of Blockbuster rentals which led to an obsession with purchasing the latest Bluray release from Best Buy throughout high school and college. Despite graduating from an Ivy League school Robbie was unable to figure out that Bluray was a dying platform and now stores one of the largest collections of DVDs gathering dust while he streams the latest release from AppleTV. He resides in Deep Ellum, a chill neighborhood in Dallas, TX, and is not cool enough to live there. Robbie is co-creator and co-editor of Reel World and also contributes as a podcaster and blogger while also coordinating social media for @reelworldlive.
