Robin has just found out that he is too old to qualify as a generation X’er but is a millennial at heart anyway. A single ‘job-for-life’ type career was never in his plans. In his long and varied working life he has been a civil servant, builder, telesales operative, waiter, barman, stage manager, taxi driver, delivery man, journalist, MC, facilitator, singer, designer and unsurprisingly, because he’s had all these other jobs, actor.
He trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and spent 20 fun-filled and treasured years working as an actor on TV, Radio and most widely in the theatre. He met his wife Caroline doing the Rocky Horror Show (pictures available on request) and continued doing his business work alongside his acting career until 2006 when he joined Purple Monster full time.
Purple Monster has allowed him to bring his creative flair to business and most importantly to people in business. The artistic side of his personality is fascinated by how people behave and why they do what they do and the communicator in him is always itching to share those opinions and insights to anyone who’ll listen. His wide selection of jobs have also given him great insight into what it’s like to really feel engaged at work.
Any time not spent on the A14 is spent with his beloved family. Lily is studying for a Doctorate in Psychology and Education at The University of Harvard and Barney is following in the family’s footsteps having just graduated with a first from Trinity Laban Conservatoire and has just made his professional acting debut at the Opera House Manchester.
Robin loves his home; Connie, his westie, going to the theatre, Reading FC and all sports, especially cricket. He is still the holder of the record highest individual innings of 176* in the Morrant Three Counties cricket league.
*the league was disbanded six months later
