Who is Andy?
My name is Andy, and I’m a software engineer living in the steel city of Sheffield in the North of England. I currently work as a Technical Team Lead at Evoluted New Media.
Before working full-time in the web industry I worked in Quantum Optics research as a theoretical Physicist. I graduated from the University of York with a PhD on the subject of “twisted light” and worked for a while at the University of Sheffield on the subject of polaritons.
Outside of web development I enjoy seeking out street art; I maintain the Street Art Sheffield website and occassionally run street art tours. I'm learning to play the ukulele and electric guitar. I also enjoy walking in the Peak District, reading and cooking.
My claim to fame is that I’ve appeared in an episode of Family Guy.
