A long-time volunteer and contributor to Strong Towns, Andrew is a software engineer and project manager based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. 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 previously living in Houston, Andrew began blogging about urbanism and helped start the CNU-Houston chapter. After getting connected to Chuck Marohn through CNU, Andrew was all-in on Strong Towns and has been a key advocate for the transition of the group from an engineering-centric blog to a broader movement-building organization.
