Robin Willis - Writer

Robin Willis is confused. He is a Cannes International Film Festival award winning filmmaker and the director/cameraman of hundreds of television commercials for such brands as Texaco, Coca Cola, Telefonica and ESPN for agencies like Weiden and Kennedy, McCann Erikson, Ogilvy, TBWA and Jung Von Matt; a producer and host of live events and podcasts; a writer for various website sites including Metropolitan, Delicooks and his own sadly retired vegetarian web screed, "F-cking Carrots." Last year his giant broken glass paintings of corrupt politicians were the highlight of the city wide Weart festival in his adopted hometown of Barcelona. He also can cook, a skill he and his kid brother learned to protect themselves from their mother's culinary stylings. Most importantly he is Dad to the quadra lingual 14 year old Zoe.

He also does a few other things but you are probably already questioning his sanity and are undoubtedly googling him. No, he has not written a cookery book before but he has been toiling away on various blogs, screenplays, stories, articles and long rambling discourses like this one. 

Mr. Willis splits his time between Barcelona and Barcelona.
