Andy-Patrick

Andy is an entrepreneur at the forefront of technology, design, and storytelling. He has developed, negotiated and shepherded through successful execution such diverse projects as the first online banking for Citibank (on 3.5” floppies no less!), managing the first live webcast from the North Pole for National Geographic, creating the first ecommerce websites for Apple, Virgin, Nordstrom and Patagonia. He has continually blended his for-profit success with innovative philanthropic programs including a crowdfunding platform for communities, an international grant and training program for photojournalists, and creating an emergency shelter program for homeless individuals. He is a frequent speaker on such issues, a curator of over fifteen photographic exhibitions around the world, and an experienced world traveler. His respect and passion for mentoring stems from a family of teachers, as well as an understanding that his success is rooted in a group of mentors whom he meets with regularly. And yes, he still loves a good white board…
