: After getting accepted to University of Technology at age 19, Carl completed his bachelor's degree in three years, opting to serve his mandatory military service after that. Because of his prior expertise in telecommunications and information technology, he was placed into signal corps. He was quickly earmarked for NCO training, and finished his 1 year conscription as a communications control and EMWAR specialist Sergeant.
Then, to finance his remaining education, he took the offer to switch into active reserve and serve a tour as a UN peacekeeper. After six months in Lebanon, he'd had his first and very nearly last combat encounter with guerillas. However, since the money was good and the prospects back home in the IT field weren't so great, he decided to go for another six months. Thankfully that tour was more sedate, and his unit had no combat at all. After finishing his year as a peacekeeper, he was promoted to reserve Staff Sergeant for his work and dedication as a peacekeeper.
It took him three more years after that to finish his Masters after, but he was fairly well off financially thanks to his year as a peacekeeper and investments since. Eventually his ingenius way of thinking caught him a position in R&D department at Nokia, in the new telecommunications branch, Nokia Siemens Networks. There he went on to build a successful career as he rose in ranks thanks to his new and innovative solutions to problems in telecommunications equipment.
During his years working at NSN, Carl had kept up his military training, joining refresher courses and voluntary training whenever available. This resulted in his promotion to Sergeant First Class at age 31. Fairly soon after that, he got an offer from NSN to become the head of the new R&D branch opening in St. Petersburg thanks his fluency in Russian and his development successes in telecommunications technology. He accepted, and moved to St. Petersburg, returning home mostly on holidays and for military exercises. Under his guidance, the Russian branch prospered and he also occasionally gave guest lectures in St. Petersburg University of Technology on the topic of telecommunications. He is currently regarded as one of the foremost experts in telecommunications technology in St. Petersburg.OFFICIAL OBSERVATIONS
: RESERVED: DO NOT WRITE HEREOCCUPATION
: Nokia Siemens Networks St. Petersburg R&D branch manager.PERSONALITY
: Carl is quite outgoing, regarded by most as friendly. However, his demeanor can be off-putting at first. His face often wears a scowl and he rarely smiles. This makes him occasionally hard to approach, but once he gets talking, he quickly puts most people at ease. His outlook towards life is slightly conservative, though he respects other people's opinions.
His tours as a peacekeeper tempered his personality with caution, making him more soft-spoken and alert. He likes be aware of all possible risks and take appropriate countermeasures. His intelligence and innovative spirit only really shine through when he's working with communications equipment. He doesn't hold much interest in technology beyond his chosen field.PHOBIAS

Carl's character offers two different options for bringing him on board. As he is on active reserve, though technically a civilian, he can be recalled to duty when necessary. It's GM's pick whether they picked him up as a civilian expert, or whether he got a military recall for the mission. If he's on board as military, he's probably outfitted with the whole signal soldier kit. If as a civilian, considerably less likely to be provided with initial military hardware. Will probably still have computer and communications gear from either personal stock (he's got a house full of the stuff) or provided for the mission.
