Combined Skills
Tech Support + Business Networking + Computer Networking + Hiring + Troubleshooting + Business + Bookkeeping + Freelancing

In 1999, I began attending business networking events around Victoria BC. Because I was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about computers, I quickly found opportunities with small insurance and accounting firms to manage their local area networks and software.

In 2000, an IBM alumnus named Ken Marriette referred me to the top-performing sales team at Investor's Group, headed by Susan Nielsen.

"...I recently referred him to a major client of mine. Not only did Andrew live up to my expectations, he exceeded those of my client."
- Ken Marriette, KGM Enterprises, Letter of Recommendation

Susan's main technical challenge was the way the company set up her computer network. Using a series of troubleshooting techniques, I found a solution that enabled her to substantially increase her office's productivity.

"It is no exaggeration to say that we are saving a substantial amount of staff time daily and are now even better equipped to meet the needs of our clients."
- Susan Nielsen, Investor's Group Financial Services, Thank You Letter

I wrote an instruction manual for the solution, and Susan sold it to the company. Investors Group deployed it in over 300 financial planning practices across Canada in 2001.

I continued doing tech support freelance until 2005, when I had enough work to bring in help. Unbound remained in operation until my employee, Colin, had to leave due to a personal tragedy in 2007. I was already freelancing as a PHP coder when Unbound did its last network upgrade for Discovery Insurance.

Combined Skills
Bookkeeping + Budgeting + Business + Education

From 1997 to 1999, I completed a certificate in Business Administration at Camosun College which included two courses on Accounting Fundamentals.

I continue to actively apply this knowledge. Today, I use it mainly for my freelance business activities and taxes. In the past, I have used it for my roles in business partnerships and nonprofit organizations.

Accounting 152 covered accounting principles, cash, receivables, inventory, capital assets, current liabilities and owner's equity. It walked students through each step in the accounting cycle in order. The final project was the preparation and analysis of financial statements for a sole proprietorship.

Accounting 153 went into further depth on the same topics, except it focused on the preparation of cash flow statements and analysis of financial statements. The final project was a complete accounting cycle for a sole proprietorship, a partnership, and a corporation, enabling students to understand the differences.
