Andy Tolton

Public Relations and Marketing Manager

Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated by words. I’ve even taken that curiosity and fascination to the point of creating a language with one of my best friends in high school, that continues to develop between us to this day. As that curiosity has developed, I’ve humbly come to respect their power. I’ve witnessed how visceral words can be and have experienced how the simple architecture of words in a sentence, or the varying inflection of the spoken word, can inspire action, emotion and understanding between people. It’s an art full of science, and a science full of art – the best of both worlds.

Everywhere you look, there is a story. It’s what brought me to Xinova in the first place – there are stories all around us waiting to be told. There are people waiting to hear that story. Waiting to be uplifted, educated and moved to action. Trouble is, who is going to tell your story? My hope, and mission in life, is to make sure that YOU will tell your story. Everyone is a natural-born storyteller, most just don’t believe it. Or, through adolescence and maturing through adulthood we’ve forgotten what we’re capable of. While I absolutely love telling stories, and never hesitate to share them in animated detail, the greatest joy I get in life (beyond time with my family) is helping others tell their stories. Helping others find their unique voice. Helping others to, finally, be truly heard. 

As I have worked with people from various backgrounds, I have come to find that many struggle to find the words – and in many cases, that struggle can represent a massive barrier for an individual, a product and even an entire company. That need, along with a wealth of stories, is what attracted me to Xinova – the work that we are doing, the problems we are solving, and the solutions we are helping develop, is impactful for the world. And, not only do I get to learn from some of the brightest minds our world has to offer, around the globe, I get to help them tell their stories to the world. I get to help them be heard.

I’ve found the golden ticket – through my work at Xinova, I get to experience joy. What’s better than that?
