As the mother of 2 handsome boys, 2 rowdy cats, and wife to Mike, Robyn Sandoval is out-numbered by males 5 to 1 in her home. Although she discovered her feminine side when she was in college, her tomboy childhood serves her well for playing football in the backyard with the boys and talking smack across the poker table.
She grew up in conservative Dallas, but moved to liberal Austin in 1993. When Robyn met Mike in 2000, he told her that he managed a pipe store, and she assumed that he meant a head shop. He introduced her to the world of high-end tobacco and accessories. Unlike many women that smoke cigars with their husbands or have his-and-hers perfumes and colognes, Robyn has always been an enabler from the sidelines. She encourages Mike's hobbies and especially loves how he takes pride in his collections.
Robyn is only on this website as an admin for her editorial and web design skills, but she may interject a female perspective on topics here and there. When she's not picking up toys and tweaking PHP files online, she is an Editor at a publishing firm in Austin.
