Andre took a roundabout way to web development. Before BizStream, he worked as an ecologist at a land trust for several years. He realized the power of software after using a program developed specifically for land trusts to organize data. This eventually led Andre to Grand Circus, a coding bootcamp in Grand Rapids. He enjoys coding because it “pushes a button in his brain that makes him feel awesome.” Andre loves running and hiking with his wife, Kimby, and their dog, Cow. He is a mediocre cook and gardener, aspiring to be slightly above average at both.
