Robie Flores grew up in Eagle Pass, a small town on the border of Texas and Mexico. She attended Texas A&M University her freshman and sophomore years but after a spontaneous uproot to New Jersey, she finished her undergraduate studies at William Paterson University graduating cum laude with a degree in Communications and Media. Robie began her work in documentary filmmaking when she interned at Loki Films where she later stayed on as an employed production assistant working on projects like DETROPIA, The Education of Mohammed Hussein, True Life: I’m a Boxer in Detroit, CNN Heroes, and a piece for Stand Up 2 Cancer. In early 2013, she assisted Loki Films in the research work for Branded – one of the nine documentaries for ESPN’s new TitleIV series, where she worked very closely with ESPN Films. Most recently she worked as an assistant editor on a feature length documentary following young high school students in New York City on their journey through deconstructing racism for Point Made Films.
