Andrew Otwell is an information architect and interaction designer living in Austin, Texas.
Andrew earned a Master's degree in Art History at the University of Texas, where he studied Surrealist and Dada art. In 1997, he finally admitted his real interests were with digital design and the web, and so left academia. Fortunately, it turned out that the analysis of visual culture and the analysis of information for the web weren't so very incompatible, so Andrew found himself doing information architecture and interaction design in design agencies, dot.coms, and corporatations in Austin, Texas and in Berlin in 2001-2002. He has also taught classes in Information Architecture and a semester-long version of "Introduction to Computational Media" at UT.
