ABOUT ANDY:
When you’ve decided to surround yourself with people who are smarter than you, Andy Gray should be among the first ones hired. The moment he walks into the room, you can feel the collective IQ jump. And given a moment or two, he could tell you exactly how much within a few hundredths of a percent.

Andy earned an MS degree in Computer Science from the University of California San Diego and a BS degree in Computer Science from Harvey Mudd College. Since then he’s been using his incredible wisdom to help organizations be more effective through strategic technology solutions.

His software development and leadership experience has benefited companies large and small, including CenterSpace Software, Five Talent Software, Symyx Technologies, Evolution Software Design, IntelliChem, Rogue Wave Software, ACCEL Technologies, and Microsoft.

If that weren’t enough, Andy is also the host of “A Congruent Life” (acongruentlife.net), a podcast sharing inspirational stories of authenticity and happiness. He has coauthored The Elements of C++ Style and The Elements of C# Style, published by Cambridge University Press, and has been a frequent speaker at industry software conferences around the world.

Andy grew up in Central Oregon, and though he enjoys traveling the world for both business and pleasure, always considers himself lucky to come home to Bend.
