Andrew was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee where he was best known for driving an orange VW Beetle. After graduating magna cum laude with a BBA in Finance from The George Washington University in D.C, he went to work for Apple. While there, he fell in love with research and Economics, so he left Apple to get a Diploma in Economics from The London School of Economics and an MA in Economics from Boston University. He currently holds two research appointments: (1) as an Economist for the U.S. Department of Transportation (working primarily on behalf of the United Nations) and (2) as a Research Analyst for the National Bureau of Economic Research (with a joint Research Affiliate appointment at MIT).
Andrew has worked as a teacher and tutor in several capacities – starting with his time as a trumpet tutor while in high school. More recently, he has taught Mathematics classes at the high school level (within the Cambridge Public School system) and he has tutored Mathematics and Physics classes at the high school level. His core strengths include Mathematics, Economics, Statistics, and many statistical packages (e.g., Stata).
Outside of teaching and research, Andrew loves racquet sports (e.g., tennis, racquetball); he’s an avid cyclist (excepting winter – because he’s not crazy); and wants to adopt every puppy that he meets.
