Robin spent his teenage years discovering and falling in love with music, while learning classical violin and piano, electric guitar, playing in orchestras and choirs, punk bands and big bands. He went on to study Music & Sound Recording on the prestigious Tonmeister degree course at the University of Surrey, during which time Robin made his first foray into music editing during an internship with the highly experienced music editor, Andy Glen.
Upon graduating with First Class Honours in 2006, Robin secured a position at Abbey Road studios as an assistant engineer.

Here he cut his teeth engineering a wide variety of sessions, as well as assisting various world-class producers including Ethan Johns, Steve Osborne and John Leckie on sessions for artists such as Laura Marling, Paolo Nutini and Vampire Weekend.
Robin went freelance in 2010 to continue his music making through engineering and film music editing.
