A native of Southern California, in 2007 Andrew slowly started drifting east. Stopping in Chicago for two years, he worked as a research coordinator for Northwestern University. The specific lab was focused on nanotechnology, material science, and self-assembly. The benefit of the long, cold Chicago winters was that it gave Andrew lots of time to work on applications for architecture school, which had long been a plan deferred. In 2009, he was accepted to GSAPP and thus packed up the Uhaul and headed east yet again. Now finishing his third year in the M. Arch program, Andrew is looking forward to participating in Experiments in Motion for his final design studio.
