… very good people skills

… has very good people skills.  … Ian comes across as likable and easy to work with.  People like and respond to Ian because of this trait.  The ability to build relationships with all types of people is an effective tool to have when dealing with people.

… has a desire to help people.  There are two ways to go when being a substitute teacher.  You distance yourself from responsibility and do the bare minimum or you can get involved to help others.  Ian rolls up his sleeves no matter what the task or subject area is.  Ian proactively helps others which is sincere and appreciated by the people he helps.

… determination

-1- An interest and a capacity to take on new challenges

-2- A determination to stick at things until they are completed.

*** Carlton B. - retired U.S. Diplomatic Courier


… Persistent 

… funny, optimistic, positive. However, if I had to pick a single thing… I think of "Persistence is omnipotent".  …one of my favorite quotes of all time is from Calvin Coolidge "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

*** Leif M. – Software Engineer 3 U.S. Gov.


… ability to communicate 

… your best asset is your outgoing friendliness and ability to communicate with others. Positive attitude and ability to laugh making people at ease is a real talent. ….your positive outlook in whatever you do ... is an asset.

*** Jerry S – Alaska Fishing Guide


… listens to others 

. . . willingness to listen to others to get a full understanding of where they are coming from. You care about the people around you and you truly want what is best for them.  …. another strength you have is you know who you are and are not trying to be someone you are not. You are a very down to earth person who is grounded and not expecting unachievable goals.

… a very smart individual who is always willing and wanting to learn new things.


*** Matthew M. – Hunting Dept. Manager, Sportsmans Warehouse


... always going the extra mile

     “I think it is an immutable law in business that words are words, explanations are explanations, promises are promises, but only performance is reality.  

     I had the good fortune to meet and work with Ian Andrews during the development of my web site, www.uav-alaska.com. Ian understands one of the prime tenants of business, that you give the service then you get paid. 

     During the development of my website, he always took the time to learn as much as he could about our business activities and for that reason he was able to effectively portray our company professionally through our web page. I can’t thank him enough for always going the extra mile."

*** John C. Parker, CEO Integrated Robotics Imaging Systems, Kenai, Alaska 

… excellent communication skills.
