Andrew was born in Minneapolis, MN, and was raised in a small town in Maine. While attending Minnesota Twins games, he was usually lucky enough to get a baseball, but one time an usher tried to kick him out for crawling into an off-limits storage area. He enjoys family time, construction projects, reading, exercise, and European football.
After graduating from the University of Maine with a BSEE, Andrew obtained an MSEE from National Technological University. He's worked in manufacturing and product development with focus on test, reliability, process development, and quality. Highly motivated to see things done well, he's led a multitude of improvement efforts at Digital Equipment, Motorola, AT&T Wireless, T-Mobile, Microsoft, and now Synapse.
