Andre Da Costa
Biography
Andre lives on the beautiful island of Jamaica (yeah, mon) residing in the South part of Manchester, in the small town of Cross Keys. He is a certified PC Technician and enjoys doing free lance graphics in his spare time. Andre can best be described as friendly, passionate about technology, a lover of nature and enjoys sharing his views on topics he is highly interested in.

His journey into blogging started 5 years ago when Microsoft introduced their online blogging service MSN Spaces (which was renamed as part of the Windows Live wave of Services). Like many Andre was enthralled by the excitement surrounding the development of Windows ‘codename’ Longhorn which eventually became Windows Vista. From then on his enthusiasm for Windows grew into a passion. Throughout those years he was able to expand his reach through the opportunity of writing reviews and articles for ActiveWin.com thanks to founders Bob Stein, MVP and Byron Hinson. 

The opportunity for him to start his own blog and share his opinions with readers about technology allows him to help and learn from so many in return. “It has been one of the great aspects of blogging. That’s one of the key things about technology and the essence of the MVP Program itself, the opportunity to share and learn.”

You can often find Andre publishing his latest articles at http://adacosta.spaces.live.com or helping out in the Microsoft Answers Windows 7 Forums.
