Andrew is an entrepreneur, conservationist and investor. Andrew joined NRDC in 2003 and upon receiving an NRDC newsletter that profiled E2, immediately contacted Co-founder Bob Epstein and joined E2. Andrew feels E2 is unique in that it combines pro-business and pro-environment forces with a nonpartisan approach through a virtual and action-driven network. As Founder of E2 Rocky Mountains and former Director he is actively working to help broaden E2 membership in Colorado geographically beyond Denver/Boulder and help define E2’s advocacy in Colorado and the region.

Andrew’s passion is wildlife conservation.  Andrew, who has traveled to wild, remote places in Africa and North and South America, believes there is a real urgency for endangered species conservation. He is working on media projects to raise awareness and increase giving in the U.S. for endangered species work internationally where our dollars go a lot further and connecting all wildlife media to action. For an example please see his two minute motion graphics video http://www.ShiftGivingToNature.org  . He gave a TEDxBoulder talk on this topic which can be seen here: hhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7MeCPfaPR0&feature=player_embedded

Andrew came with E2 to Washington, DC, in May 2006 to speak to legislators about the importance of preserving a strong Endangered Species Act. He continues to reach out to Colorado’s local and state legislators on this issue. Andrew also joined E2’s 2005 advocacy trip to Washington, DC, and in 2004 he arranged a press conference and support letter for a Colorado renewable portfolio standard that ultimately passed.

The DC advocacy trips have been the highlight of volunteering for E2. "I meet impressive E2 members from across the country, I learn about how to be an effective advocate and I get access to experienced NRDC experts on specific environmental issues." In addition to those "West Wing" moments, Andrew also enjoys getting advocacy updates from E2 that show we’re moving the needle. "We’re a unique, powerful voice in DC because our culture has a natural admiration for the entrepreneur and successful businessperson. We’re able to make a larger impact, and that’s satisfying."
