Andres started out as a software developer back when XT was a thing and the stars were young. Since then, he has built web sites, banks, taxation systems and peer to peer telephony networks. Alongside all this, Andres has acquired a BSc on mathematical statistics, an MBA and a MSc from the MIT SDM program. For the past fifteen years, his main focus has been on software architecture, a passion that brought him to MIT. Andres most recently worked on figuring out ways to architect the information systems of Estonian government, a leading digital nation, and is now seeking ways to disseminate that experience elsewhere. He is married and lives in Tallinn, Estonia, with his two kids and too many guitars.
