Andrew hails from California by way of Connecticut. After graduating from Connecticut College with a degree in environmental psychology he jumped headlong into his editorial career in San Francisco helping found Dodge City Journal, LIMN, and Dwell.
In 2006 he headed back east, this time to New York City, to help reinvent the august publication, American Craft. Prior to joining AREA 17 he served as the editor-in-chief/chief brand officer of ReadyMade.
He is the current “What You Make of It” columnist for the New York Times in which he digs through the refuse of New York with the goal of turning trash into treasure.
Andrew has also penned the forwards for Princeton Architectural Press’ “Handmade Nation” and Chronicle’s “It’s Lonely in the Modern World” as well as contributing chapters to Phaidon’s Vitamin Green series.
When he’s not working on AREA 17’s global domination you can probably find him playing second base for the semi-professional baseball team, the Downtown Bulls.
