I have worked with Andrew many times, whether it's on with the Unanswered Posts or Beginners Team. He has been a lot of help to me in the past, and I enjoy running the Beginners Team IRC group with him (bhb is an awesome bot...). I whole-heartedly support his application to become an Ubuntu Member.

Andrew is amazing at the forums, on the IRC, everywhere. I have worked with him since some time now and he has an amazingly positive attitude towards all members. He is a great team leader (the Unanswered Posts Team) and evidently, a dedicated individual. He has my full support for the membership

-- Sayak Banerjee

I have had Andrew in my focus group in the Ubuntu Forums Beginners Team for a few months now, along with working with him for the duration on the UF Beginners Team, and Andrew is one of the most driven, and committed team members that I have had the great pleasure of working with. I enjoy all of our interactions and feel that I come out of them knowing more then when I started. He does an incredible job working on the IRC Administration and is nothing but fair and objective. Please consider his application favorably.
