Meet the Team: Andrew



That’s right! One more teammate slipped in at the last minute. Andrew lives in Seattle and spends most of his days typing and getting paid for it. In that sense, he is a professional keyboardist, which he may put on his new business cards now that he thinks of it. Andrew’s never been too tied down to a place. He’s moved cities on average every three years since birth, and moved housing several more times than that. He’s also been lucky enough to see a lot of the world traveling, but this big chunk of Eastern Europe and Asia will be all new, and he is incredibly excited.

Hometown: If we define this as “places I lived with my parents,” then Albuquerque, NM; Redwood City, CA; Toronto, Ontario; San Mateo, CA; and Scottsdale, AZ
Current Location: Seattle, WA
Job: Programmer. I’m working on a fighting game starring some insect monster things.
Mongol Rally Job: Sextant
Countries visited: Australia (have citizenship), Belgium, Brazil, Canada (lived there), Czech Republic, France, Germany, Guatemala, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg (barely), Mexico, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland (barely), UK
Languages attempted to have spoken: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese (Brazilian)
Where you will pretend to be from when you get tired of answering questions about America: Australia
Instruments attempted to have learned: Trombone, Tuba, Clarinet (I own three, all by chance), Guitar, Banjo, Jaw Harp, Harmonica
Card games you will insist be played while camping: Doppelkopf and Cribbage
Ukulele song most excited to learn: Gone, by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. See here.
Country you’re most excited about: Iran, if we get to go there. Otherwise Turkmenistan because I hear they have bread there named after Turkmenbashi’s mother.
If you were a car part, what would you be? I would be a turbocharger because it packs more air in to the cylinders and gets more power out of the engine. That’s how life should be. Pack as much in as you can, and make the most of what you have.

  1. Awesome! I’m so glad you’re doing this Andrew. I remember a few months back when you said you weren’t going it just seemed like the wrong choice. When do you leave?
