Robin Blackburn b. 1972

Ms. Blackburn lives (and grew up) in San Marcos, Texas, where the locals call themselves "San Martians." Her job consists of saving the world from bad grammar while wearing yoga pants. She comes from a family of musicians, dancers and fortune-tellers who also happen to have day jobs. Says Ms. Blackburn, "People sometimes mistake me for a responsible adult if I'm wearing clothes I've borrowed from someone else."
