Andy is a futurist. Heâ€™s been a digital native since 1994, when he wrote a documentary called â€œSecrets of the Internet.â€ Along with his love of digital, Andy is inspired by scientists: brilliant people who make surreal discoveries and work to transform reality. Now, as one of the early pioneers of the service design industry, Andy helps the worldâ€™s biggest brands transform reality through innovative design.
After spending years in the games and interactive television industries, Andy became intrigued by mobile and joined Fjord as Director of Service Design, where he worked on strategic projects for companies such as Nokia, Orange, O2, Samsung, TelefÃ³nica, and Vodafone. Now, as the Managing Director of Fjordâ€™s Madrid studio, Andy looks beyond the interface to help Fjordâ€™s design community and clients thrive.
Andy is an expert in mobile and a frequent speaker at global conferences and events including TED, SxSW, IXDA, Mobile 2.0, and M-Football. When Andy isnâ€™t thinking about the future of mobile, he still tries to emulate great scientists, but Andyâ€™s experimentation isnâ€™t in a lab. Itâ€™s in the kitchen, where he is working on the perfect curry recipe.
