People-focused

Innately interested in how people interact both between themselves and with software, I've been involved in the user experience design world for almost 10 years.

Technical background

Coming from a software engineering background has given me the ability to empathize with the developers on my team and informs my design decisions.

Engaged in the community

Whether volunteering my time reviewing conference submissions or heading up local UX groups, community has always been an important part of the work I do.

Andrew has an innate talent for leadership and mentorship. As a manager, Andrew never acts like a superior, he acts like an advocate. He doesn't say “Here's what you need to improve on,” he asks “Where do you want to grow?” and “How can I learn from you, too?” He intuits strengths and gives the space to run with them with total support. Under his guidance, I grew more in skill and confidence in two years than I had in the past five. It honestly turned what had been an intimidating and imposter-syndrome-packed career change into an awesome experience.

Andrew took on a variety of responsibilities at Society of Grownups–in true startup fashion. He not only supported and onboarded the technology team, but was instrumental in the launch of societyofgrownups.com. Andrew then moved into a bigger leadership role where he built the processes to attract, retain, and grow talent as the company expanded from 5 to 55 employees. Andrew's attitude is exemplary and his level of drive, grit, and initiative is truly incredible. Whether it was leading by example, analyzing and driving the metrics on employee satisfaction, Andrew is truly dedicated and gifted.
