Who am I? I'm Robynn.
Growing up, while most of my peers were preparing for lucrative careers in medicine and the legal arts, I was watching The Simpsons and writing my own episodes of Mystery Science Theater and performing them for my friends (read: stuffed animals) .
When I graduated from college with a pretty useless degree in humanities, I found work as a journalist at a radio station. There, I delivered the morning on-air news and produced short radio features. I took a break from journalism when our first son was born (now there are three!) and worked from home for a few years as a marketing content contractor.
In 2013, I once again dove back into journalism and worked as a reporter for KSL.com, Utah's #1 local news station. I wrote, I produced, I web managed, and I loved it. At KSL I delivered rapid turn-around breaking news articles and focused on writing long-format tech and lifestyle pieces.
After KSL I lived in the Bay Area for five years and worked with burgeoning startups and large corporations, writing marketing copy and web content. There, I continued to build a resume around comedic and creative writing. In December of 2018, I completed UCLA’s “Writing for late night comedy” graduate certification workshop, taught by Second City veteran Holly Wortell.
Things I love:
