I first became interested in computers at an early age when my parents bought the first family computer, an Epson Equity I, in the late 1980s. I went on to make my first website in 1997, a small cartoon fan site hosted on the crosswinds server.

In 2003, I started attending the Rochester Institute of Technology, where I studied Information Technology: New Media, which would later be renamed to New Media: Interactive Development. It was in this field of study that I became interested in technology trends, adoption cycles, and usability of any interface. I also became interested in the merging of design and media with computers, in an increasing visually driven environment.

I also enjoy studying social forces and like to comment on why people act a certain way, often writing about current events and social movements in my blog. I usually use humor and satire to address complicated technological and social issues, because I feel using humor makes things easier to read, remember, and to understand.

In my spare time, I enjoy: drawing, writing, woodworking, fish keeping, gardening, sculpting, hunting, gaming, soccer, and watching the History Channel. I follow cryptology, was a New York Section V 100m sprint champion in high school, and play the saxophone. My favorite sports teams are: the Rochester Rhinos, the U.S. national soccer team, the German national soccer team, the Cleveland Indians, the Chicago Blackhawks, and the Miami Dolphins. Currently, my favorite gaming system is the Wii, due to its revolutionary user input, and I am a Mac.

Hi, I'm Andrew Whitesell and I design things. I first discovered my passion for design and multimedia when I started coming up with ideas for Super Nintendo games back in the early ‘90s. Being interested in both computers and art, I created my first website in 1997. Six years later, I enrolled in the New Media program at RIT where my knowledge and skill base grew.
