Robert Lawton


Fifteen years exceeding the expectations of the American people of civil servants, doing IT at the U.S. Small Business Administration, a year in Africa with the Peace Corps learning that people are not so different, but places are, two years working with the Anishinaabe at a tribal college in the North of Minnesota, learning about love and loss, a year working for myself and three working for one of the biggest banks in the world learning what I want from work, has brought me here. I am exceptionally good at quickly understanding (grokking) new technologies and seeing ways to use them in the real world. I love people in nearly all of their forms, and I derive most of my pleasure from their company, at home and work. I have spent the last six months studying the cloud, virtualization and myself. I seek meaningful labor in the company of good people. Perhaps in an interesting place.
