Andrew B (Street Articles Author)

My name is Andrew, and my goal is to help make your life just a little bit simpler and easier to understand. The articles I write for Street Articles are designed to help answer those little everyday "why's that" questions. I've been a technology buff since I was ten years old, and specialized in tech writing and on-line marketing later in life.

Today, I've become very interested in the world of alternative and preventative medicine, what with the costs of traditional health care going up. My academic background is in political science and history, so you'll see a collection of articles on those subjects as well. I work in the communications sector for a large wireless company. To remain unbiased, I won't be writing about the wireless industry directly. You may see articles that indirectly relate from time to time. In these situations, I will remind readers of any potential bias, so they can come to their own informed conclusions about the issues.

My free-time passion is outdoor sports, including backpacking and kayaking. This summer I'm going to be going white-water rafting for the first time.
