MOTTO

WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER.

Andy came into the field of graphic design early on when he realized his disdain for writing papers. Little did he know that he could not escape that aspect, since much of User Experience involves a lot of research and writing after all. He graduated from the University of North Florida with a degree in Digital Media / Graphic Design. He worked in the restaurant industry through college, and gained an unique perspective on human interaction and the importance of establishing a personal connection to ensure an optimal user experience.

In his free time he enjoys video games, Magic: the Gathering, working on cars, cooking, and traveling.
