Andrew was born in Long Island, NY and raised in Prince George's County, MD. He is a graduate of Charles Herbert Flowers High School and the University of Maryland: College Park with a B.A. in African American Studies: Public Policy concentration.
His college experiences included heading various executive positions as a part of the Caribbean Students Association and Society of African American Studies. It was after taking a qualitative research class that he realized he wants to pursue a career in ethnography and conduct research on African American youth health issues and their causes. He wants to see positive outcomes in every community and is always willing to help out and explore other research methods and topics as much as he can.
Having past positions as a Research Intern for the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation and a General Assistant at UMD's School of Public Health for the M-PACT project, his research career has now placed him as a Research Assistant at the Pew Research Center.
Andrew has enjoyed playing video games since he was three years old, and loves to stay up to date on the latest technology. If you have any technological issues or need a gaming buddy, he is the one to notify!
