Andrew received his MBA from Pepperdine’s Graziadio School of Business. When not maintaining his (Foursquare) Mayoral status at Fanscape, Andrew can be found rooting for his beloved Angels, mastering the art of Rock Band or catching his favorite dance music artists when they come to town.
Fanscape: We know you love Foursquare, but what are some of your other favorite social applications or widgets?
Andrew: It’s not a new app, but the MLB At Bat app was recently updated with a “ballpark check-in” feature that allows you to view stats, scores, and other highlights from all of the games that you attend live. It’s a huge upgrade over saving my ticket stubs and looking up box scores. I also love WorldCard, which scans business cards and turns them into contacts.
Fanscape: What are your favorite websites?
Fanscape: Share with us one of your must-see pieces of branded entertainment?
Andrew: I think it’s pretty amazing what Trivial Pursuit did with YouTube. Combining a rich flash-based trivia game and pitting users against viral celebrities is a unique way to brand themselves and appeal to a very wide audience.
