Who Is Andrew Garcia?
Andrew Garcia is an eclectic, dynamic individual with a wide variety of passions and skills. Andrew's diverse background and adventurous spirit drive him to find meaning and wonder in everything he does.
Andrew was born on September 9th, 1986 in Ohio, USA. He grew up all over the globe and has lived in many countries including Australia, Spain, Mexico and Taiwan among others. He speaks English, Spanish, French and Japanese.
Having graduated from Ithaca College ('09) with a Bachelor of Science in Communications, Management Design, Andrew has been given the opportunity to utilize his range of skills in a professional environment. He has a passion for web/graphic design with an emphasis on new/social media. He is a communications and marketing/brand development specialist but would implore you to check out his resume for more details on his professional background.
Although Andrew places a special emphasis on enjoying life, which he articulates through exploring the outdoors, skydiving, art, video production and DJing/Music Production- he can think of nothing more influential than the love of his life (and fiancee), Shelby. Together, they write and manage a blog called Inseparable Nomads and live to travel and explore the world and discover all the adventures it has to offer.
Andrew has an extremely diverse skill set, with the education and experience to back it up. He is multilingual and has an international background having spent over 15 years travelling the globe. He is a web designer, graphic designer, music producer, videographer, DJ, marketing-communications consultant and a specialist to many degrees.
Andrew utilises many resumes for different areas because of his diverse range of professional interests and ventures. As a result, he will have several resumes available, and the general one is currently being redesigned.

His username is andrewgarcia86 across the board. Listed here are some of his most frequently used social media outlets.
iSeeResults is an experimental web app currently in development. It was designed by Andrew Garcia with sponsorship from Dr. Dennis Charsky at Ithaca College. The premise of iSeeResults is to create a visually driven alternative to modern search engines.
Today, the framework for modern search design is entirely list-built and text-heavy. Andrew wanted to create something different that the average end-user could relate to through a visual context. The vector based animation strengths of Adobe Flash made it the ideal environment to develop iSeeResults in. Combined with PHP and the open Google Search AJAX API, iSeeResults will functionally overhaul the way we run our searches.
iSeeResults is expected to be beta launched by the end of 2009.
