Originally from Maine, Andrew studied cultural anthropology and environmental science while gaining experience in political organizing, farming, and food systems. After graduating college, Andrew began his professional career as an organic farmer in the Hudson Valley and has worked at multiple farm operations across the region. He was part of the first class of the Hudson Valley Farm Hub’s professional farmer training program, leaving after 2 years to start his own farm operation. After 8 years in the agriculture field, Andrew has recently transitioned back into grassroots organizing around climate and energy policy at the state level.
Andrew owns a house in Kingston with his partner Sophie who works in federal agriculture policy and cattle dog Sutter. He likes to read science fiction, bike around town and on the trails, play racquetball and soccer, and kayak. He believes deeply in the mission of the Kingston Land Trust as a radical but realizable model for participatory land use planning that genuinely centers justice, equity, and inclusion. As a KLT board member, he looks forward to transforming and knitting together a diverse small American city like Kingston.
