👋Hi, I'm Andrew A.K.A: Anderson, Drewbert, Drewbydoo
I'm a User Experience Designer with a background in product, motion, and 3D design; and the occasional designer of sustainable cleaning products.
I've always been someone who has teetered on the border of art and technology. As a kid, I wanted to be a concept artist inventing worlds and characters for film and games. In high school, I discovered robotics and this newfound love of technology and problem solving pushed me towards studying Engineering. It wasn't until I discovered the world of UI/UX in college that I finally found a way to marry these two loves.

How I approach design
My experience in engineering greatly colors my perspective on design. I favor rapid iteration and prototyping over extensive pre-planning. I tend to conduct my research simultaneously with ideation, creating a broad set of potential solutions and allowing research and testing to narrow them down and reveal false assumptions. The best solution is never going to be the first one and the more fruitless approaches I can eliminate early on, the quicker I can get a sense of what actually needs to be made.
Outside of design, You can find me in the workshop as an amateur woodworker or in the kitchen as wannabe chef. I also spend time involved in outreach as part of Engineers for a Sustainable World and as a FIRST Robotics mentor and alumni. I'm passionate about inspiring and motivating young people to improve the world around them by starting with their local communities.
Nintendo games are pretty cool too...
STUFF I'M ENJOYING
What I'm Reading
House of Leaves (2000)
Mark Z. Danielewski
Just started reading it so I don't really have much to say yet. The experimental layout is engaging but makes it hard to read for long periods.
What I'm Playing
Astral Chain (2019)
Crazy over the top anime action! Probably the most unique action game I've played in years.
