He entered MIU's MS in Computer Science Program in 2007 and soon moved to Silicon Valley to serve as engineering director and lead product manager at RockYou, developing the popular Facebook® games Birthday Cards and Zoo World.

In 2010 Andy co-founded FunPlus, a gaming company [now based in China] that created such hits as Facebook's Family Farm, Royal Story, and Happy Acres. . . . [and] launched several multiplayer mobile strategy games [which became bestsellers in many countries].
