As a medical anthropologist, I do research, write, and travel widely to give talks
Hey, I'm Robbie!
Austin, Texas, United States · Member since March 2012

I am a medical anthropologist specializing in the anthropology of reproduction, most especially childbirth, midwifery, and obstetrics. I am also an activist--I am passionate about helping women have respectful and empowering birth experiences through supporting midwives, doulas, and humanistic obstetricians. I travel widely to give talks in many countries and to see the sights. My partner Alan is an entrepeneur and business consultant who also loves to travel. We have a housemate, Michael, who takes care of everything, including my dog Violet, when we are gone. When I'm home, I love taking Violet and her best doggie friend Maverick creekwalking (in the water and on the trails) at beautiful Bull Creek, which is very near my home every day for exercise and fun! I'm pretty new to Airbnb--I've only hosted one set of guests so far--some cool young tech guys who were delightful to have around. I'm looking forward to more! (I do speak Spanish and am always happy to have a chance to practice it!)
