Following his work at the City, Andrew led the design and construction of the Cornell Tech project on Roosevelt Island, which included the world’s first high-rise passive house building and the net-zero Bloomberg Center academic building. Most recently, he worked at Sidewalk Labs, an urban innovation company founded by Alphabet (Google), focusing on digital technologies in urban environments and off-site prefabrication of mass timber buildings.

Earlier in his career, Andrew worked on, and eventually led, the planning for New York’s 2012 Olympic Bid. He also worked at the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, the city-state agency responsible for overseeing the redevelopment of Lower Manhattan following September 11.

Andrew studied archaeology and ancient history at Wesleyan University and earned a masters degree in architecture from Yale University.
