## Who I Am
Hi, I'm Patrick Aikens.
I'm a software engineer, and have been for a very long time. I started in the
video games industry. Since then I have passed through the insurance industry
and the banking industry before ending up at Manheim, Inc. where I remain today.
I enjoy reading, though I've shifted in recent times to more audiobooks as my
commute times have increased dramatically. I enjoy fiction mostly... sci-fi,
fantasy, adventure. I read comic books. I play video games. I code small
projects in my (very limited) spare time.
