Andrew Hicks

Person Name

I now have over 30 years of experience in the computer industry.  My passion for computing started while at school when as part of the work experience program I spent a week working at one of Worthing’s premiere computer stores “Worthing Computer Centre”.  After my work experience ended I was lucky enough to be offered a part-time job evenings and weekends working at the store.

In 2000 and after passing my second Microsoft exam I achieved the qualification of Microsoft Certified Professional.  In December 2011 after passing a further four Microsoft exams I then achieved Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer status. 

More recently I worked for a network installation company based in Hastings called DAT where we installed a new computer network for the Travel Agent Thomson Travel and a computer solutions company in Bognor Regis called Connect Computers where we set up and supported new computer systems for Veterinary Practices.

It was during my employment with the Connect Computer when I fell ill with Testicular cancer.  During my recovery, I was unfortunately made redundant.  Having almost single handily run Connect Computers I felt it was the time I started my own company and in 2007 I setup Aranea Creations.
