BUT DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Robbi and Matthew were two of the most talked about presenters from our RISD Mindshare event in 2012. Students and alumni loved that they could identify with this funny, smart, and talented couple who spoke frankly about the joys and challenges of running a business. Their excitement for their work, their relationship and their family felt truly special. Kudos to Robbi and Matthew for finding that remarkable balance and offering it in their superbly crafted presentation—a true visual treat! Kevin Jankowski

Matthew and Robbi were a big hit at our program at the Reisterstown Library. They excel at mixing humorous banter and real-world knowledge of story-making, storytelling, creative collaboration, and self-publishing to create an engaging and informative program. They were organized and professional to work with, and a pleasure to get to know. The kids loved being able to make and take home their own book. Rachel Medina and Lisa Dibbern

Frankly, I’m star-struck. It all started when Robbi and Matthew gave a workshop for my program a few years back. They were engaging and funny. The students loved them! I think I love them, too!

Though entirely humorous and delightful and full of energized spunk, Matthew and Robbi answer questions with the kind of frankness and thoughtfulness that one rarely finds. The lessons imparted by this brilliant duo pertain to anyone who cares about life and its abundant beauties and quandaries.
