After launching the Academy of Interactive Entertainment’s Adelaide’s Campus in 2015 and facilitating its rapid growth and popularity with the local community, local industry and government, Robin has taken on a national role with AIE since June 2016: Deputy Director of Industry Development and Government Relations.
Robin liaises with industry and government to strengthen and grow AIE’s excellent relationships with developers, publishers and government at local, state and federal levels.
She draws on her 20 years of game and film development experience which includes a six-year stint in Europe teaching and creating games for 8 year-olds to 80-year-olds and working with Australian studios Ratbag and Rising Sun Pictures as well as international publishers Ubisoft and Activision.
