“The seeds of my journey to this career were sowed at the age of five, on receipt of a toy double-decker bus from my mother. This simple gift inspired a fascination in all things British, eventually leading to an incredible study abroad experience and enthusiasm to support the ambition and success of globally minded students for generations to come.”
Education
Andrew came to London from rural Wisconsin, where he began his studies at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. In his junior year, Andrew fulfilled a lifelong dream to study abroad in England, leading to his transfer to the University of Surrey where he graduated with honors in 2000. Andrew’s further academic ambitions led him to the University of Cambridge, where he completed his Master in Philosophy in Human Geography in 2002.
Travel Experience
Andrew credits his study abroad in England as being the best decision of his life - an adventure that remains as fascinating today as his day of arrival, Oct. 1, 1998. Outside of his deep exploration of the UK, Andrew is an intrepid traveler, noting Greece, Scandinavia, and the Scottish Hebrides as absolute favorites.
