About Me

Born and raised in the suburbs of New Orleans, I moved to Austin to go to the University of Texas and decided to stay after graduation.

In 2014 the incredible happened and we decided to leave Austin, TX for the San Francisco Bay area, settling in the hills of Oakland.  Recently we made another move to California Wine Country and I continue to work as a computer programmer.

When not working or tinkering with technology at home I enjoy several outdoor activities such as hiking and Geocaching.

I live in the SF Bay Area with my wife Penny and four unruly cats.

    Hi Robert,

    I’m Jamie SHaw, a long time tech recruiter here in town.

    I’ve been recruiting on a SR SW engineering role with a 30 yr old local company. This is a role developing web applications and possible mobile too. Your technologies and experience are a great match.

    Great pay, excellent benefits, and paid time off. The CEO for the company was named in a published “Top 10 CEO’s in Austin” list last year, and he is very technology focused.

    Would you be open to a discovery chat about this opportunity?


    My Regards,

    Jamie Shaw

      Sorry for the delay in responding. We’re in the middle of planning a move to the SF Bay Area, so I’m not looking at Austin area opportunities at the moment.

      Good luck with your search!
