Hugo Catchpole

London, England

Hugo started developing for Alexa in 2017 as a digital nomad. 

In 2019, he returned to London and Founded HUGO.FM. He now has a small team working on Alexa full time. 

Always keen to chat to Alexa developers and enthusiasts, you can find him attending the conversational AI London meet-ups. 

As a developer who has been making Alexa skills since they came to the UK, he has made over 200 Alexa skills. Hugo is an example of someone who turned a hobby into a full time business that now employs people: excited about the future and how Alexa will be a part of it.
