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 because I enjoy learning new things.

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

* No animals were harmed in the making of that hat.

Career wise, I am a professional technologist. I work as a business analyst being the interface between the business and the techies who make things happen.

Having first trained as a classical musician and composer my tastes are eclectic. You can find me listening to everything Ravel, Stravinsky and Mozart to The Smiths, Radiohead, and Rufus Wainright.

Dancing has played a role in my life. Particularly swing dancing (lindy hop). I taught it for many years in Melbourne. My moves are now based in Kung Fu, in particular Wing Chun - a martial art focused on structure and relaxation.

Making timber furniture is my hobby whenever I can find the time. It keeps me relaxed and teaches me patience. You can see more of this on Furniture By Carl.

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.

Oh, and check out Technology Without Borders, a social enterprise group I'm a part of who helps underpriveledged children get exposure to science and technology.

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