Hi, I'm Andy! 👋 I help fun teams with big ambitions, from core strategy to getting my hands dirty with growth, product, analytics and code. Email or tweet me if you'd like to chat - firstname.lastname@example.org / @andyy My special power is thinking about tech businesses from 360°, fuelled by my varied experiences as a software engineer, tech architect & CTO, product lead, country lead for B2B sales, partnerships & operations, and most recently focusing on overall business success as a technically-minded growth marketer. I excel in a crisis. Particularly an identity crisis. Mostly I don't Excel, I Google Sheets. An engineer at heart, I started out as a kid creating my own games on a ZX Spectrum, before early jobs building web apps for e-commerce, real estate and more. While studying Computer Science at Oxford I founded membership management platform GroupSpaces, and grew it to help thousands of group leaders manage 5 million memberships, raising $2.5M investment along the way. I launched Stripe in the UK and Ireland, growing our presence from early beta through to the payment platform of choice used by many thousands of companies from startups through major brands. I was ready for promotion to lead 3 countries, but the Scottish independence vote didn't go through. The Selective Tweets app I created for Facebook has been used by over 1 million people - I wrote about it here: http://bit.ly/selective-tweets-story I've mentored startups at accelerators including Seedcamp, TechStars, EF, Ignite100 and Oxygen. I've given talks and led workshops at events such as WebSummit, South Summit, Leanconf & ProductTank. I like building useful things, and using technology to help people.
