Carl Joseph
Business analyst, Furniture maker, and Astronomer in training

Hi, I'm Carl

Yes, there's a duck-like creature on my head*.

When I'm not wearing silly hats, I am working at

Currently studying for my Masters of Science (Astronomy) degree, simply for the love of learning new things.

And ... when I have time, I build custom made timber furniture.

I'm an environmentalist and egalitarian with a passion for social activism.

Having first trained as a classical musician and composer my musical tastes are eclectic. You can find me listening to everything from Ravel, Stravinsky and Mozart to The Smiths, Radiohead, and Rufus Wainright. Art and all things beautiful pique my interest.

Dancing has played a role in my life. Particularly swing dancing (think 1930s/40s big band). I taught it for many years in Melbourne. These days however I'm learning Kung Fu, in particular Wing Chun - a martial art focused on structure and relaxation.

In my down time you'll find me making timber furniture in my home workshop. It keeps me relaxed and teaches me patience. You can find samples of my work on my furniture site.

Am now back at university part-time undertaking a Masters in Science (Astronomy). Particular interests here are galaxy formation, and the history of astronomical discovery and the people behind them.

Career wise, I am a professional business analyst in the tech sector. I work as a builder of teams and finder of solutions helping bring the technical and people sides of projects together.

Oh, and check out Technology Without Borders, a social enterprise group I helped to form which provides underpriveledged children with exposure to science and technology.

I think that just about covers the main bits.

I'd love to hear from you, whether it be about work, astronomy, having a piece of furniture built, or just to say "hi".
