"Andrew Tatum assisted my company during a very difficult server crash and network viral infection. He was professional and has always been reasonable about his recommendations. He always works with the idea that he is building a relationship, not just making a buck off of this one particular job. I appreciate that."

"In my 20 years in technology, I can count on one hand how many people posses the raw technology and business savvy that Andrew possesses. Whether he is building an application, designing a web site, or installing a complex CRM application, he does it quickly, accurately, and with the best customer service skills around. He has an innate ability to hear business needs and apply them to technology. He thinks beyond where the normal technologist thinks, taking into consideration the marketing, sales, support, and real-world needs of the customer.

Whether it is mobile marketing, web development, hardware, database design, and application integration, he spans so many technologies that he is an ideal one-stop-shop for anyone who needs help with their business. He looks for innovative ways to solve problems with high-quality and low-costs."

Interest

I love learning more about the human mind and how people make decisions, sometimes without much reasoning (ie: A Whole New Mind and Buyology). In addition, you'll find me reading books like Freakonomics, Outliers, and anything else by Malcolm Gladwell. Don't get my wrong though, I enjoy fiction works like The Girl

Who Played with Fire and The Art of Racing in the Rain. While I mostly stick to blogs to keep up-to-date on my web development skills, I do like reading Don't Make Me Think, Rocket Surgery Made Easy, CSS Mastery, CSS: The Missing Manual, Clean Code, and Code Complete.

Besides reading, I have fun taking my pit bull, Bailey, out on walks, to parks, and swimming. I also like to take time to appreciate the town by taking a nice bike ride every now and then. When I'm not busy working, reading, playing with Bailey, or riding my bike I take some time for myself and go to the gym. The theme that runs through my mind everyday is "Hakuna Matata."
