Hi, I'm Andy Rutledge and I live in Lincoln, Nebraska. Right now this website is just this page, but it may eventually become a kind of professional profile of the cool stuff I've worked on.
I've been interested in computers and programming since I was old enough to reach a keyboard. I graduated from the University of Nebraska in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science.
I'm the lead software developer and vice president of GIS Workshop, Inc., a small technology firm based here in Lincoln. I've worked there for over thirteen years and I specialize in building GIS software that involves mapping and spatial analysis. Check out the company website for more information about us.
I play Magic: The Gathering. I'm also a Level 2 DCI Judge and judge Pro Tour Qualifier events in Lincoln and Omaha, as well as nearby Grand Prix. My favorite format is Commander; I've built a number of Commander decks. You can likely catch me at Hobbytown at Pioneer Woods on any given day.
I put together an online Magic proxy deck builder which is useful for printing out cards for casual games or for competitive testing.
I enjoy watching sports. My favorite sport to watch is baseball and my favorite pro team is the Chicago Cubs. I've been a fan of the Cubs since I was six years old and have become a rather devoted fan in the last several years. I usually make it to a Cubs game or two at Wrigley every summer.
I also like to watch football; my favorite team is (naturally) the Nebraska Cornhuskers. I've come to enjoy pro football more than I used to; I don't really have a specific team that I follow, but I always root for former Nebraska players.
I also enjoy playing sports. I occasionally partake in a local bowling league, and even took home the gold medal several years back in the Cornhusker State Games. I've played softball during the summer with our office softball team. I've also been known to play ping-pong and badminton from time to time.
I love music! My favorite band is CAKE. I like most genres but most of all, hard rock and metal. You might think that odd, because CAKE is neither hard rock nor metal. I also play the guitar, acoustic and electric, just for fun.
Catch me on Facebook, if I know you:
and yes, this is about all of the web design effort i want to put into this page
