Meet Andrew Janney, a towering giant of a man with a toothpick in one hand and a laptop in the other. His days are not ruled by the calendar or the clock but by the climate and the seasons. His new rendezvous finds him at VisionFoundry with the summer hunt promising to be his most profitable, with proposals, still having their winter thickness.
I was born in the wrong era, says Janney, who served as the booshway for Fedsources, a job that brought him face to face with death on a regular basis sometimes through slow agony of starvation, dehydration, burning heat, or by the surprise attack of the upper management.
Disclaimer: The legends and feats of the mountain man Janney persists largely in his own mind. No animals were harmed or eaten in the writing of this bio.

Quality Assurance Manager:
Upon entering the IT industry, Mark followed the well-worn path from quality assurance to programming. However, he soon realized that quality assurance (QA) was his true calling.
Mark's approach to software testing emphasizes clear communication to ensure the desired results are achieved. He is actively involved in the requirements-gathering phase of projects, and matches test cases to rigorous and detailed "plain English" use cases.
Mark strongly believes the best requirements and the best testing converge when all stakeholders can easily understand what is being specified and how the software will support real world business processes.
As an experienced classroom teacher with a M.Ed. from Harvard, and a software trainer with years of experience in training and training management, Mark is also VisionFoundry's chief trainer.
