Andrew spent more than five years in a leadership role with an international relief and development nongovernmental organization (NGO) that advances the work of local NGOs in South and Southeast Asia. His responsibilities have included coordinating projects, forming and growing partnerships, communicating impact to stakeholders, and overseeing organizational operations. Prior to this role, he lived in India for a year on a Fulbright grant and worked as a research assistant at the University of Pennsylvania.
Andrew studied molecular biology and business at Grove City College, graduating summa cum laude. As an undergraduate, he spent a summer gaining exposure to international development work in South Asia and led three student volunteer service trips to Providence, Rhode Island, where he worked on urban poverty issues. These experiences helped shape his academic and professional interests, which include poverty alleviation, humanitarian aid, nonprofit management, fragile states, and sustainability. Andrew is the recipient of a Donald & Marilyn Keough Fellowship.
