Andrew is a mission-driven engineer, entrepreneur and operator.

He started off as a climate and energy analyst for Al Gore’s nonprofit and worked on his book “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis” (the sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth”) analyzing research on climate solutions and modeling, and engaged with scientists, labs and policy teams. He went on to serve at the US Dept of Energy during the Obama Administration implementing building energy efficiency programs seeking to identify new innovations for reducing carbon emissions.

Suffering from back pain, he later co-founded a digital health and wearable device company and grew the company from Seed to Series B to acquisition. He led roles in engineering, IP, product, manufacturing, and built a team that shipped multiple hardware/software products at scale. Then he moved to Singapore and helped build ASUS’ internal AI/ML incubator from scratch that deployed a portfolio of in-house AI services across multiple domains, led strategic partnerships across the region, and evaluated investment opportunities in deeptech startups.

Andrew holds 13 patents and earned a Master’s in Atmosphere and Energy from Stanford University and a Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. He’s now excited to be bringing back what he’s learned as an entrepreneur and operator to help accelerate scalable decarbonization solutions as Managing Director of Activate's New York community and fellowship program.
