WHAT DO I DO FOR A LIVING?

There isn't really a simple answer to this. I am a software architect, solution provider, designer, programmer, UX/UI guy, a mobile expert, startup advisor, consultant, a photographer, and a lover of the Oxford comma.

I am excited by elegant solutions to complex challenges and small but powerful development teams.

IN THE OVEN & FULLY COOKED

Stacks Image 3875
There is always a full plate of projects in my life and there always was. Check out what’s currently cooking and what’s been well done in the past.

LOOKING FOR

I am always looking to work with entrepreneurs who know what they are doing. I like to join teams as a VP of Technology, VP of Engineering, CTO, or CEO for businesses that are 0-4 years old.

I am the biggest fan of scalable agile development, and like to scale businesses. SaaS, AI, and mobile technologies are my main focus, but I am not opposed to making really cool hardware.

I am also always interested in joining the board of advisors for a compelling new business concept or technology.

NOT LOOKING FOR

Not looking to work with people who don’t know the difference between a product and a business .

Don't send me resumes, I wouldn't know what to do with them. I am not a venture capitalist (but I helped people find the right connection).

Currently I am not looking for any work for just founder shares or potential revenue in the future.

If your business idea is in complete stealth mode, I probably won't be able to help you. Communicating your idea is key, so if you want to hide, I can't help you.
The difference between stupid and intelligent people - and this is true whether or not they are well-educated - is that intelligent people can handle subtlety. They are not baffled by ambiguous or even contradictory situations - in fact, they expect them and are apt to become suspicious when things seem overly straightforward.
Neal Stephenson

WONDERFUL PEOPLE SAYING NICE THINGS ABOUT ME

Andreas is entertaining and a delight to work with on a personal level, too, even though he would have every right to be a prima donna. He does an excellent job communicating expectations, is methodical and organized, and I'd place him in the top 5% of IT professionals with whom I've worked.

Andreas prides himself in staying ahead of the technology curve and is always angling for a way to use new technologies to generate revenue.

Tanya Henderson, Esq. | Founder & Executive Director Mina’s List
Andreas has a rare gift for finding the right technical solution that will “kill two (or more) birds with one stone,” enabling lean businesses to deliver value beyond what conventional planning methods would suggest their resources should be capable of. His blend of technical mastery, strong work ethic, artistic and creative talents makes him a technical leader I value highly and would want to include in any venture.
