Andy started his career with CoPIRG in the summer of 1983, and later moved east to become an Organizing Director with MASSPIRG. During that time, he helped organize and run several environmental ballot initiatives, and helped pass groundbreaking legislation on toxics, acid rain, consumer protection and student rights. In 1999, Andy started, an organization which works to hold corporations accountable for the environmental impact of their businesses practices. In 2003, he moved into his current position as the National Campus Organizing Director, where he works with PIRG campus chapters across the country. When he's not training others to change the world, Andy is either training for marathons or training his young daughter to take on the Kenyans in the 2032 Olympics.
