My name is Andy Andrea, and I’m a Midwesterner by birth, a North Carolinian by choice and a web developer by trade. Currently, I do Ruby on Rails development alongside the wonderfully talented team at SciMed Solutions in downtown Durham, North Carolina.

I graduated from the University of North Carolina in 2014 with degrees in computer science and astrophysics. While I don’t get to utilize my physics education quite as regularly as my CS education, it remains a great interest of mine; in fact, I’m currently working on a side project to utilize both.

While the majority of my background is in back-end Rails development, I’m also interested in front-end work. I’ve also briefly dabbled in Node.js and intend to start tinkering with functional programming via Elixir and Phoenix.

Offline, I spend my time collecting vinyl records, reading some good books, cooking–and eating!–a variety of cuisines and travelling when I can.
