Andrew is a web developer and technology leader at the Financial Times currently working in Tokyo with Nikkei, the FT’s parent company, on new web technologies. He founded a web consultancy startup which spent a decade working on innovative web projects for clients including the FT, News International and the Economist group, before being acquired by the FT in 2012.

At the FT he led the team that created the FT’s pioneering web app, and founded the FT’s Labs and UI component divisions. He is now an elected member of the W3C Technical Architecture Group, a committee of nine people who guide the development of the web platform.

Early in his career, Andrew also worked on software for the UK’s national air traffic control service, founded, grew and successfully sold a web mapping startup, and planned and developed a national web based logistics information network in Zimbabwe. His current interests include many areas of the emerging web, and he will get cross at anyone who dares to suggest the ‘mobile web’ is a thing, which means he gets cross a lot.
