About Andre Simms

Professional Ever since I was a child, my interests have always been in discovering how things work. By breaking down complex operations into their smaller components, I've grown to appreciate how things work together; finding more efficient ways of completing tasks is a creative challenge that I enjoy. Recently, I earned my bachelor's degree in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, with a focus on American politics and public administration. I now work as a government professional with 3 years experience in both executive and legislative work. Many of my skills have grown from my experiences of studying problems in government operation, critical analysis and complex problem solving. Personal I am an avid photographer, and have been actively shooting for 10 years. My style has grown to focus on lifestyle photography; I love capturing my everyday experiences through the lenses of my camera. While I enjoy many types of photography, my favorite method is the long exposure. This method, when applied at night allows colors to saturate themselves in an unique way. At night, the world we are familiar with transforms into a new place, the night world is a reflection of the day.
