Andrew Smith

Professional Summary

I’m a highly motivated self starter who enjoys problem solving and architecting modular systems. I think that it’s worth the extra time to write cleaner and more maintainable code than to throw something together and have to deal with it later. I’m also a big proponent of modularity and reusability anywhere possible and functional programming.
