Robert Downer

Executive (Qual, Trends, Innovation)

Robert found his way to Crowd DNA via three years spent in Hiroshima, an MA in social media (yes, that’s a thing) and a cycle tour from London to Rome (it took a while). Having graduated from the University Of Westminster with a degree in photographic arts, he brings a creative and analytical mind to the team. His experience ranges from staying up for eight-hour photographic exposures to researching how masculinity plays out through selfies on Instagram. A connoisseur of video games, spicy memes and the first nine seasons of The Simpsons, his pop culture knowledge is enviable. When not at Crowd DNA he can be found bouldering, playing various instruments, learning some new kanji, supporting Reading FC or tending to an impressive array of houseplants.
