Hi, I'm Keenen Charles.
I'm a maker, software developer, and writer.
I've been creating things forever. Most of them failed but taught me many lessons. Currently I work as a software engineer focused on Android and frontend development and run InboxReads on the side.
Here I write articles generally about tech, art, and the impact they have in our lives.
Even More About Me
InboxReads is a directory to help you find the best email newsletters for any topic. I built it and launched it in September 2017 and it now gets 30K pageviews a month, $800 in revenue per month, and has over 2500 newsletters.
You can find more of my past projects here.
Currently I work as an Android Engineer on the Android SDK that allows clients to easily integrate open banking payments.
