Andrew’s love affair with computers began in grade three when he first played Number Munchers. Since then he has received a degree in Computer Science from the U of S, followed by a six year career at zu. While there, he led development teams and worked directly with clients such as PotashCorp, the Calgary Stampeders, and the City of Saskatoon. He then spent two years as a successful freelance web developer before partnering with Island. Andrew strives for efficiencies and sees your website as not just information, but as a tool to improve your business’ processes. In his spare time Andrew enjoys travelling with his wife and daughter, listens to funk, plays hockey, and is on an eternal search to find a horror movie that keeps him up at night.
