As Co-founder of Facebook

Andrew McCollum’s career took off when he was a student at the Harvard University. He became friends with Mark Zuckerberg and they attended classes together, specially the classes on operating systems. They spent a lot of quality time in Harvard discussing various projects. Among all the projects, it was the Facebook project that they talked most about. During the spring term of the university, Andrew received an email from Mark Zuckerberg. The email stated that Mark has managed to make a prototype of the site and he wanted Andrew to do the graphics. Initially Andrew was reluctant as he was not a skilled graphic designer. But, later he was convinced by Mark. McCollum designed the original logo and icons for the site.

He dropped out of college to dedicate more time for the enhancement of the project. Later, he was back to finish his academic degree. Getting involved in Facebook was an once-in-a-lifetime experience for him. The team never thought that their creation would become such an incredible world changing service one day. But they always saw the potential in it. They worked hard to make the features of this application user friendly. Andrew, along with Adam D’Angelo (co-founder and CEO of Quora), also launched a file sharing system that was linked to Facebook. It was named as Wirehog. The team initially faced a lot of challenges but overcame them most of the times. The priority of the team was to deliver optimum service to its users worldwide.

After Leaving Facebook

Andrew left Facebook in 2007 to complete his education in Harvard. However, this decision was quite a bold one as the site was doing extremely well at that time and he was already a successful web developer. In 2009, he developed and started the site JobSpice. This particular site helps the users to create their cover letters and resumes. The site has received rave reviews. It is a highly acclaimed site.

In 2014 he was appointed the CEO and Director of Philo Inc., an internet television platform. Andrew McCollum is also a member of the Flybridge Capital Partners and New Enterprise Associates. According to the site www.celebritynetworth.com, McCollum’s net worth is a whopping 20 million dollars.

Marriage & Love Life

Andrew McCollum married Gretchen Sisson in the year 2012. Sisson is a sociologist by profession. The couple listed their wedding party members in CoffeeScript (a dialect of the programming language JavaScript). The festivities of the day were outlined in XML (Extensible Markup Language). Kevin Der created a wedding themed crossword to make the celebrations more interesting. The musicians at the wedding played some great pieces including the theme song of Indiana Jones. The guests relished a sumptuous spread of Mexican food and sushi. It was an extravagant wedding indeed!
