Andrew has worked as an outdoor adventure camp counselor for over a decade, which sparked his passion for helping kids fall in love with the outdoors and the infinite adventure of natural experience. After graduating from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Arts in Physics, Andrew headed west to pursue work as a hiking guide in the Santa Monica Mountains in addition to playing music in Los Angeles. He ultimately returned east and found his way back to working with kids in the outdoors at Germantown Friends School where he has served in many roles including Adventure Camp Director, After School Program team member, Environmental Action Club Leader, and Lower School Assistant teacher. He is a current graduate student in Environmental Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and is very excited to be joining the team at WCT as a Conservation Associate for Rushton Farm.
Andrew's favorite part about working at Willistown Conservation Trust?
I love being outside every day, rain or shine. I love digging my hands in the earth. I love working with people who care about doing right by the people, plants, fungi, and animals who keep our communities vibrant and strong!
