I'm Andrew Mussey, a software developer at Samba TV in San Francisco, CA and the lead developer on the Capture backend team. I've been writing code for more than 10 years, focusing mainly on web technologies. My knowledge-base spans the full software stack, with a more heavy focus on operations and back-end development in the recent years.
I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2013 with a bachelor's in Computer Science. After graduation, I joined the Rackspace Cloud Control Panel team in Blacksburg, VA, focusing primarily on back-end development, infrastructure maintenance, and developer enablement. I also served as the resident videographer for the Rackspace Blacksburg office. During the fall of 2015, I relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area to work with Fitnet and be a part of OrangeFab's Startup Incubator.
On the side, I work as a freelance videographer for local startups, non-profits, and the standup comedy community. Notable clients include the coding group Let's Code Blacksburg! and the Smart Beginnings Reading Hour. Previously, I worked with Virginia Tech Television producing the sketch comedy series The Sketch.
I've produced a variety of videography and photography projects, including:
- The Rackspace Blacksburg (Racksburg) Tech Talks Series
- "Pet My Pets", a Startup Weekend Blacksburg 2014 Project
- Let's Code Blacksburg!'s Kids Series
- The Sketch's comedy videos from VTTV

While some of what I've worked on has been documented on this blog, additional in-progress projects I'm working on can be found on my Github and BitBucket profiles:
Get Drunk Not Fat getdrunknotfat.com
During the spring of 2012, I began working on an app to list the calorie counts in various drinks. During the summer of 2012, I teamed up with the creator of the website Get Drunk Not Fat, and that app became the official app for the website. It is currently available for $0.99 on both iOS and Android, and has sold tens of thousands of copies.
Rackspace Cloud Monitoring Dashboard github.com
An open source dashboard for Rackspace's Cloud Monitoring. It allows users to see the statuses of the alerts on all of their cloud properties. More info can be found on Github and on the announcement blog post.
Corey's Barn Benefit github.io
After an tragic accident during the summer of 2014, Corey Brown - a friend of a friend - ended up in the hospital with an extensive medical bill. To help pay back some of the bills, a benefit concert was held in his honor. The entire show was recorded, and in the following months, edited together. I constructed this website and pay-what-you-want donation system to allow people to continue donating to receive a downloadable copy of the show. In total, the benefit concert helped the family raise over $6000.
SK Lightworks sklightworks.com
A C# project created to allow for PC control of the Rockband Stage kit. The project gained significant traction in 2010 when Harmonix released Rock Band 3 on Xbox 360 without support for the Stage Kit.
