About Hawke Robinson

I strive in the hopes that during my limited time existing I will have helped contribute to improving the overall human condition.


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 me, please use the link below:

The Grandfather of Therapeutic Gaming

Hawke is most well-known as “The Grandfather of Therapeutic Gaming" in healthcare, technology, education, professional development, and role-playing game (RPG) circles. His groundbreaking integration of therapeutic, educational, and professional development practices with gaming has made him a founding and key figure in this new and fast-growing field of Role-Playing Game Professional (RPGP) services.

Additionally, Hawke is a skilled full and fractional Chief Technology Officer with more than 25 years of technology innovation leadership experience, adept at transforming business concepts into successful technological realities. His works in multiple industries and disciplines are often published as "W.A. Hawkes-Robinson".

With a talent for bridging the gap between business leaders and technologists, Hawke's career encompasses roles as a leader, mentor, educator, therapist, and public speaker. His expertise spans information technology, computer sciences, music and recreational therapy, neurosciences, research psychology, education, cognitive neuropsychology, role-playing games, neurotechnology, and physical and information security.

Hawke is known for his results-oriented approach, characterized by integrity, compassion, creativity, and energy. He excels in both executive leadership and hands-on execution, rapidly and effectively building organizations and technology solutions from the ground up.

Hawke's philosophy focuses on sharing knowledge openly for the betterment of the human condition.

Beyond his professional life in technology, education, and healthcare, Hawke is also a 20+ instrument musician and composer, an adventurer, advocate, community builder, and parent. He values privacy and security but shares personal insights to provide a fuller picture of the person behind his projects and communities.

An active advocate for accessibility, open source, privacy, and effective security measures, Hawke's height, formerly 6'9" and now 6'7", often becomes a point of opening "ice breaker" conversations.
