Pennsylvania/Southern New Jersey/ Delaware Territory Rep
A former Coast Guard officer and life-long sailor, Robin has been a rower since 1999 when he and his wife, Merry, best-selling author of the Zoe Hayes mystery series, joined Vesper Boat Club. Robin races a single and, with Merry, a double in Masters events on the Schuylkill and other Mid-Atlantic venues. Their daughter Baille was recruited to row for Jim Dietz at UMass, Amherst; her younger sister, Neely, rowed a successful high school career.
After his service in the Coast Guard, during which he assisted in writing the regulations to the Safe Boating Act, Robin ran his family’s industrial valve business, managed an oil recycling company, owned a hunter-jumper stable and ran a business managing horse shows. He put himself through law school as a commercial actor and was in the private practice of law for many years before taking his present position as a clerk with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
Robin has been selling WinTech Racing shells through Jones Rowing Company since 2001 when he became the Mid-Atlantic dealer for Drew Harrison Racing Shells, the precursor of WinTech Racing. Robin has become a well-known presence at all the regattas and rowing events in his area.
