“Karl is a very experienced software engineer with a tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge in computing.”
“Karl worked independently on this project and delivered ahead of schedule a solution that worked tremendously”
“he assisted with time-critical projects unrelated to his primary task, for which we had no other resources, and allowed our company successfully meet certain deadlines and overcome unforeseen obstacles because of his versatility. Karl also assisted in improving our development processes in a number of ways. Even a short, informal discussion with him can lead to greater understanding of software development processes both architecturally and logistically since he draws upon a wealth of knowledge throughout the industry; I would think that this knowledge transfer alone would add significant value to any organization. Therefore, I heartily recommend Karl”

“I have known Karl for several years professionally. He definitely combines the brains with deep and up-to-date tech knowledge, permanent creativity and awareness with flawless judgment, and perfect drive to lead people to a great result. If he is looking to move now, it is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!”

“had worked for me as a senior design engineer in the area of electronics design at Raycon Corp., a manufacturer of custom electrical discharge machines (EDM), Ann Arbor, Michigan. Karl, an extremely qualified and professional engineer, displayed exceptional talents in the design and manufacture of LSI and FPLA circuitry used for high speed signal transfer and real-time EDM process monitoring. In addition, he was responsible for upgrading, configuring, and maintaining the company’s Microsoft network system. Karl has always been one to keep abreast of the latest technological developments in the industry and related areas. I would highly recommend him for both managerial and technical positions.”
