I am an electronic design engineer working in the telecoms industry in the UK. I have a masters degree in Electronics with Space Science and Technology and a PhD in Software Defined Radio. I am also a husband, occasional guitarist and incurable tinkerer. I'm a member of Bristol Hackspace although since work has taken me out of the area I rarely make it to the regular Thursday night open evening any more.
I've worked in all parts of the electronics and technology industry from high-street PC and phone retail, factory work and design engineering to pure research. I enjoy anything to do with electronics although I'm most adept with computing/processing jobs. I've done everything from hand coding 8bit assembler to super computing on hundreds of 64bit cores. Currently I mostly work with mid range 32bit ARM microcontrollers working in a variety of real-time applications with some FPGA/VHDL work and PCB layout whenever I can find an opportunity.
I was featured engineer on EEWeb so reading that interview might give you a little more background if you're that interested.
