The Many Hats
He's Wearing
A Quest for Architecture in Everything &
Seemingly Endless Amounts of Time
By Andreas Randow

Hi there!

There isn't really a simple answer to what I do for a living. I am a software architect, solution provider, designer, programmer, UX/UI guy, a startup advisor, consultant, a photographer, and a lover of the Oxford comma. 

I am getting excited by elegant solutions to complex challenges and small but powerful development teams.

Hi there!

So what exactly do you do
for a living?

Looking For

I am always looking to work with entrepreneurs who know what they are doing.

I like to join teams as a VP of Technology, VP of Engineering, CTO, CPO, or CEO for businesses that are 0-4 years old. There are plenty of possibilities within my network.

What I am looking for

Proper Orange

Proper Orange is comprised of a dozen business & technology experts who deliver company building as a service (CBaaS).

Each with years of C-level experience, the company’s principals never lost their passion for doing the work or the desire to delve into the nitty-gritty.

This is where we take companies
to scale. Best team ever!

Not Looking For

Don't send me resumes, I wouldn't know what to do with them. Also I am not a venture capitalist.

If your business idea is in stealth mode, I probably won't be able to help you. Communicating your idea is key, so if you want to hide, I can't help you.

The Dark Side Helmet

It's not technically a hat,
I am not looking for these things

Andreas is entertaining and a delight to work with on a personal level, too, even though he would have every right to be a prima donna. He does an excellent job communicating expectations, is methodical and organized, and I'd place him in the top 5% of IT professionals with whom I've worked.

Camera Hat

If I am not terribly busy inventing, programming, consulting, or designing, I like to spend some time behind the camera.

Would love to spend more time
behind the camera.

Baseball Helmet

Not playing ... definitely not playing. But I am building some really cool baseball tech over at Realplay™

The Baseball Helmet

Nope ... not playing ...
but rather building some cool baseball tech

Andreas has a rare gift for finding the right technical solution that will “kill two (or more) birds with one stone,” enabling lean businesses to deliver value beyond what conventional planning methods would suggest their resources should be capable of. His blend of technical mastery, strong work ethic, artistic and creative talents makes him a technical leader I value highly and would want to include in any venture.

Flight Simulator

At some point in my life I made a living building flight simulators. Now it's just a hobby I only occasionally find time for.

Desktop Pilot Hat

I wish I had more time
for my flight simulator

Everything Andreas does he does with incredible flair, skill, humor, and elegance.

Hell ... no!

I am not wearing this one. I have to go with Mencken on this one, who defined Puritanism as the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.

I want everyone to be happy.


After years of refusing to join Twitter, I have finally given in. So if you don't mind strong opinions, feel free to follow me.
