About Me

Who are you?

My name is Karl, and I am a software engineer. I am currently working for Amazon, working on the Scout autonomous delivery robot. In previous lives, I have also written cross platform C++ server systems for the FinTech industry at ACTIV Financial Systems (now part of the Options IT family), and before that I was an ASP.NET developer for the UK National Health Service.

Perhaps more importantly, I am a husband and father of two.

Picture of me and my family

I’m currently based out of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. I like football, long distance running, mountain biking, most kinds of music, movies and computer gaming.

I’m a Linux enthusiast and I run Arch or Ubuntu Linux on most of my PCs at home, and feel most at home hacking with configs and code.

I’m qualified with a BSc in Computer Programming, which I achieved at Teesside University with first class honours.

What is this place?

This is mainly a place where I keep my thoughts and links to my various different projects. You can find most of my projects on my Github or on my portfolio page.

I have a blog, but I don’t usually post anything unless I have something interesting or useful to say, so you can sometimes expect years between posts :-).
