Andrew's Profile

Experience Summary

After graduating with a 2:1 in a BSc (Hons) Computer Science at Heriot-Watt University in 2006, I took a sabbatical year at the Student's Association responsible for commercial operations, including various promotional activities with brands such as Sony, Malibu and Aftershock. Since then I have been working as a Tactical Field Marketing Agent, on various activities. A lot of this for technological companies such as HP, Fuji, Sony and T-mobile. During university my spare time volunteering for the student union; setting up/running events, contributing to the student newspaper and helping organising charity events. This led me to continue my interest in the entertainments industry, with DJing/karaoke hosting at private functions to watching, learning and performing stand-up comedy. I also enjoy Tae Kwon Do and previously held positions of “Fundraising & Competitions Officer” and “Equipment Officer” at Heriot-Watt Tae Kwon Do School. I’m also interested in science fiction, socialising with friends, as well as being a casual computer gamer. View my contact details, availability, and stats.

Other Experience

In addition to the work above I have also done Administrator/Client Support for T-Mobile. This work involved making sure an organisation/company has a seamless transition to T-Mobile from another provider or to upgrade existing customers to new handsets.
