A long-time volunteer and contributor to Strong Towns, Andrew is a software engineer and project manager in San Francisco, California. He currently serves on the Board of Strong Towns. Andrew studied Architecture in college, and was deeply impacted by his experiences studying abroad in Italy and Taiwan as a student. He’s had a diverse work life, spending a few years in newspaper publishing, urban planning, and real estate before making the switch to software. While in Houston, Andrew helped start the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) Houston chapter. He and Chuck met through CNU connections, and Andrew was immediately all-in on Strong Towns. Andrew has been a key advocate for the transition of the group from an engineering-centric blog to a broader movement-building organization.
