Hey all - 

I’m Robyn Kanner. It’s great to meet you. I’m primarily a storyteller with a focus on digital. I’m from a small town in Maine and have lived everywhere from New York City to El Paso, Texas. But I’m currently based in Washington, D.C.

I’m currently the Vice President of Digital at STG Results. We’re doing some good stuff.

Also, I’m very focused on the 2020 election and doing everything I can to elect the next President of the United States of America. Speaking of which, have you registered to vote?

Most recently, I was the Director of Creative and Product on Beto O’Rourke’s Presidential campaign. Working on this campaign was the privilege of my lifetime. I have the deepest respect and admiration for El Paso.

My writing on culture has appeared in Wired, The New York Times, The Atlantic, Vice, The Cut, and others. I’ve led design at Google, Amazon, and New Balance. And I’ve made some weird art, like Friends With Secrets.

TechCrunch, Fast Company, The Verge, and Vox have all written about things I’ve made, but I’m not doing any press right now. So unless your name is Brad Pitt, please don’t ask.

I’ve got a newsletter that I use to catch up with folks. It’s mostly me just bloggin’. You can sign up for free.

Besides work, I watch a lot of films. 1917 was great. Reminded me of Fury. Uncut Gems ruled. Richard Jewell was nuts. Marriage Story! Don’t even get me started.

Oh! And I write songs. Here’s one my friend Chris and I recently wrote called Blankets (Berlin’s Burning).

Anyway, here’s my email. robyn.kanner@gmail.com
