"Who has time, but of course if we don't take time, how can we ever have time?" --The Merovingian, The Matrix Reloaded.

I am usually very busy working on exciting projects that are helping improve the overall human condition. My schedule is very full, and rarely check social media, and I do not accept unscheduled phone calls (though I do check my voice mail). Email is the best form of communication.

If you would like to schedule a phone call or online meeting with Hawk Robinson, please use the link below:



I have chosen to take time on my many other projects (or employers), and so have not spent much time on this site over the years, so it is very much showing it's age. This is a utilitarian page, and it's not pretty, but hopefully you can easily find the information you seek. This is ancient Plone 4.x Enjoy! -Hawke - now switching to third-person voicing on the site...

A newer site, less technology focused and more healthcare focused, on Plone 5.x, can be found at

I had the pleasure of working with Hawke Robinson on a very challenging project. Apart from his diverse technical expertise, what amazed me was his level of meticulousness and thoroughness in solutioning. He leaves no stones unturned and got some great solutions to the table for our academic setting. His collaborative approach to working with the open-source community surely gives him an edge. I will be happy to work with him on another challenge if the opportunity presents itself. Hawke will be a great asset to any organization that hires him.




Hawke is one of the "very few CTOs who possesses not only the ability to execute complex technical tasks, but the high-level soft knowledge that maintains team cohesion, communication with non-technical partners, and essential support in investor pitch meetings" --Ben Dobyns, CEO, The Fantasy Network, and Zombie Orpheus Entertainment

[as CTO] Hawke was an outstanding leader with the highest level of integrity. He took a rag tag team of developers and built an amazing department through coaching and leading by example. Hawke is a perfect blend of business man meets technical maven. I would recommend Hawke to any company looking for a stand-up leader, with great people skills and a broad understanding of technology. --Brian Scardina. Directory, Application Security at TSYS.

His ability to design well-documented, scalable solutions that meet new and emerging needs is a gift to whomever hires or contracts him." "There are very few CTOs who possess not only the ability to execute complex technical tasks, but the high-level “soft” knowledge that maintains team cohesion, communication with non-technical partners, and essential support in investor pitch meetings. Mr. Robinson is one of them." -- Ben Dobyns, COO The Fantasy Network and CEO Zombie Orpheus Entertainment.

Hawke is largely responsible for the developer I am today. While at MightyWords, he sort of took me under his wing and gave me the room to expand my knowledge and make a massive impact on the technical operations of the company while providing opportunity after opportunity to let me learn, grow and put my new-found knowledge to work. His knowledge is amazingly broad and deep and he is able to see the big picture for any project and get the right people in the right places at the right time to make it all come together. On a personal level, he is one of the most generous and friendly people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. This engendered a loyalty to him that I still haven't shaken. I consider him a natural leader for all of these reasons. --Rob Zazueta. Director of Digital Strategy at TIBCO Software Inc. August 29th, 2009.


"Hello! I was a counselor at the MDA 2017 Summer Camp and participated in both the Battle Royale and the Adventure Quest. All I can say is that you are AWESOME. My shy camper completely opened up for the
first time during the Battle Royale and had the best time. I know that it was his favorite activity from the camp! Plus, he loved that he got to decorate and keep his very own shield. Thank you for everything that
you do. I'm forever grateful to you! "
