After graduating from Memorial University, Andrew started work with an oceanographic field services company in the oil and gas industry. During those years, Andrew was responsible for the development of new software and hardware systems to support company activities and clients. It was during this time that he started to manage larger scale projects and became accustomed to working at sea in the harsh North Atlantic. In 2007, the opportunity arose for him to manage and direct the overall R&D activities of the Seaformatics project at Memorial University. The project was a welcome opportunity to help lead the development of technologies that would reduce the time scientists and engineers would have to spend at sea to collect data in the oceans. Now he’s forging ahead to commercialize these technologies by starting in the consumer market with the Waterlily turbine.
