About the author
Andy is from Seattle, went to college in San Diego, and lives in New York City. In order to join KF21, Andy is taking a leave of absence from Ernst & Young where he works as a financial consultant leading projects focused on risk management, regulatory compliance, and transaction advisory. Andy’s role has allowed him to better understand the drivers of a sound business – from a company’s essential supporting functions up through the importance of having a strong leadership team. During college, Andy played on a nationally ranked 1-AA football team, was an editor and columnist for the school’s newspaper, gave campus tours to prospective students, and held leadership positions within four prominent on-campus organizations. Once he graduated, Andy was elected to the Board of Directors of an international non-profit which gave him the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in strategic planning, international expansion, and business development. Being a Pacific Northwest native, Andy enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and spending time with his family. He is looking forward to being part of the KF21 and to work with people who are motivated to alleviate poverty around the world.
