HI — I'M ANDREW!

    I enjoy working on problems that require both an understanding of the technical details, and appreciation for drawing connections across different disciplines. I've tried to look for unique experiences that satisfy this.


    My first job out of college was as a management consultant working with some of the world's largest and most complex financial institutions to address capital and liquidity issues in a post 2008 world. This included working with banks, broker dealers, custodians, asset managers and insurers across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.


    I've also spent some time thinking deeply about how to fund new types of assets. This started with working at a YC backed startup funding early stage science, and has expanded to thinking about new vehicles for financing long dated risks (yes, including crypto).


    I'm inspired by cities, and try to find opportunities to explore as many as I can in my free time. I was previously based in New York and now in Asia — splitting my time across Hong Kong and Singapore.
