I'm Andrew Mussey, a software developer at Rackspace in Blacksburg, VA. I've been writing code for more than 10 years, focusing mainly on web technologies. My knowledge-base spans the full software stack, covering both front-end and back-end development.
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'm a 2013 Virginia Tech graduate with a bachelor's in Computer Science.

It is currently available for $0.99 on both iOS and Android, and has sold tens of thousands of copies.
