WriteTech Content Principal Robyn Weisman is a second-generation Los Angeles native (which to some Hollywood residents seems the equivalent of having had relatives on the Mayflower), born at what is now the headquarters of the Church of Scientology. After growing up in the San Fernando Valley, she earned a BA in American Studies from Stanford University and then an MFA in Screenwriting from USC.
Her love for technology first flickered when her maternal grandfather traded a shipment of eel skin purses for a gold-plated digital watch. A few years later he gifted her and her brothers an Arcade Pong cabinet under dubious circumstances, and that flicker burst into a flame.
Robyn started writing about technology to support herself after film school. After covering the commerce angle as a reporter for several years, she turned her focus to the enterprise IT side of the industry. Her move to content copywriting happened organically, after receiving several inquiries from companies she had covered over the years. Quickly, these companies discovered her knack for turning complex, difficult topics into approachable copy that resonated with their audiences. It has since become her mission to make enterprise IT topics, such as cloud computing and cybersecurity, accessible to anyone, regardless of their technical knowledge.
Currently, Robyn lives in Los Angeles with her two dogs. When she’s not working, you can find her driving her 1964 Ford Falcon Squire station wagon around town or obsessing about the L.A. Dodgers.
