He started his activism as a student organizer on campus, where he mobilized young people to fight for sexual and reproductive justice.

He also served as the Fundraising Committee Chair on the Young People For Alumni Board of Directors, engaging and training the next generation of progressive leaders. Soon after, Andrew joined the Choice USA team, where he brought his unwavering passion for youth leadership development and feminist praxis to his work in the field, engaging, training and mobilizing the upcoming generation of pro-choice leaders. He now serves as the Program Director for a youth leadership development company in California.
