Andrew originally hails from Upstate New York, but has called Portland home for 11 years now. A fundraiser with a degree in Theatre & Gender Studies, most recently, he worked for Zenger Farm and helped grow the Urban Grange. He sees Street Roots and the vendor program as part of the fabric of Portland and is excited to be on the team. When not putting the "fun" in "fundraising", you might find him sipping a microbrew, eating a bagel, cooking up something in his kitchen or randomly injecting Buffy quotes into conversation to see if people notice.
