Protect your courage

After interning at a local venture capital called the Lamp Post Group in his junior year of high school, and a recruiting startup called WayPaver, Andrew realized that the startup and tech world was the place for him.

The route he wanted to take to get there originally was through a gap year continuing internships, but after evaluating his options, he decided to go directly into college at the University of Colorado. After a semester of school, he realized that he needed to find something different to do, and that is what brought him to Watson. Over his time at Watson, Andrew wants to change the way that people travel and think about adventure. Apart from startups, Andrew has also spent his time working as a freelance graphic designer, theater lighting designer, shop hand, and newspaper photographer as a ways to stay creative. In his free time, Andrew likes to travel, whitewater kayak, and play video games.
