Robin Haskell graduated from Santa Barbara Business College with an emphasis on Early Generation Network Systems Administration during the days of Banyon VINES, 10baset, and Token Ring. He made the Dean's list and was an outstanding graduate of his class.
Joining Texaco, he became a member of Texaco's "Offshore Startup Team," Platform Harvest Pacific offshore waters, and later a member of the "Offshore Startup Team" Platform Barite Gulf of Mexico waters. Platform Harvest utilized early generation Taylor Software automation processing and Platform Barite utilized Siemen's early generation Touch Panel control systems for both oil and gas processing and safety systems.
After 19 years with Texaco, Robin went to work for Frontier Technologies as a Network Systems Engineer in support of the Western Range contract for AFSC (Air Force Space Command).

His claim to fame is completing the Antique Motorcycle Cannonball Run Coast to Coast in the fall of 2010 in support of Fred Lange Restorations out of Santa Maria, CA. The two of them completed the Coast to Coast 21-day run across country on #46, a 1915 Harley Davidson, without a day or a mile lost to breakdown covering over 3,200 miles--Kitty Hawk, North Carolina to Santa Monica pier, California.
Robin is most proud of his family and his very successful three sons and their wives and being able to see two of his grandchildren--who both attend Corvian Community School--almost every day.
