After observing the disregard for users’ security prevalent throughout the software industry, and the lack of respect for privacy across society as a whole, Robin's despair was turned to action by Snowden’s revelations of 2013. He believes that the software industry is culpable in the demise of privacy, most people are in denial about the current state of software security and their own role in mass surveillance, and now is the time to fix our attitudes. He attempts to demystify and promote privacy and security in Australia by facilitating workshops, making noise on the internet, and organising Hack for Privacy.

He has a background in software development and served ThoughtWorks as a tech lead before focusing his attention on information security.
