Welcome to the personal Homepage of Andrew Sporner
I am a software engineer by trade (specializing in C programming, FreeBSD/Linux/*nix).
I also develop applications using a custom designed framework. I am originally from North Central Indiana.
In my career i have been fortunate to have been in many places around
the world. It was during my tenure at Network Engines in New England that
I told my superior that i was ready for a new challenge. I said, "Germany"
and he said, "Go EAST! Young man! I spent the next 14 years there, first as
an employee of two German companies and then after nearly six years, founding
my own business. I returned in 2015 and now reside in Southeastern Michigan.
My hobbies and interests are: Drumming, Analog Photography (I maintain a darkroom), repair of antique electronic equipment (tube type), Ham Radio and the upkeep of a small hobby farm. I am a history buff as well, especially as it
applies to first generation computers (such as the one behind me in the photo)
In the past I have sung with German choirs (Link Here) and I am fluent in the German
language and understand some of the southern dialects. I have also played in
several orchestras during my stay there including:
- Stadtkapelle Gaggenau Spring 2005
- The Holzkirchner Symphoniker (fall 2005 [Program HERE])
- Blasskapella Kochel am See (2006-2008)
- Musicvereine Liebersbronn (Esslingen) 2009 [Video HERE]
- Musicvereine Riederich 2011-2013 [Video HERE and HERE]
