Andrew grew up in a low-income household and had little support navigating college and financial aid applications. After finding mentors to help him with the process, he graduated from the Metropolitan State University of Denver with a BA in English in 2004. Directly after college, he worked as a writing tutor and facilitator for spoken word workshops with youth. Over the next two decades he continued to work in community colleges and universities as a disability support specialist, academic advisor, counselor, and educator. He’s passionate about making education more accessible, especially for historically marginalized communities.
Outside of his work at College Possible, Andrew helps program local film festivals, bakes, writes poetry, and spends time with his partner and their rescue dog, Felix.
