Robb has enjoyed writing and performing since he was a child, and many of his earliest performances earned him a special recognition-reserved seating in the principal's office at Highland Elementary. His weekly humor column "Or So it Seems™" has been featured in A News Cafe, and his news stories and feature pieces have appeared in The Bakersfield Californian. He's been on stage as an opening stand-up act in Reno, and his writing has been published in the Funny Times. His short stories have won honorable mention in national competitions and his screenplay, "One Little Indian," was a top-ten finalist in a national contest conducted by The Writer's Digest magazine.
