Robbie started his career working in startups and focused on issues relating to environmental sustainability, before transitioning to food and restaurants. His first foray in a professional kitchen was at El Buda Profano, a top ranked vegan Japanese restaurant in Peru. After returning to the states, he joined PAGU as a server/bartender and worked with chef-owner, Tracy Chang, on PAGU’s events marketing. During this time, Robbie also worked as a Baker at Mariposa Bakery, with a focus on bread baking. In his free time, Robbie runs Justrecipes.org, a recipe blog that focuses on plant-based recipes and organizes plant-based pop-up events focused on sustainable ingredients.
