Andrew assumed the role of Acting Vice President of Research and Communications after nearly four years overseeing research efforts at Funders for LGBTQ Issues, a national association of foundations committed to increasing philanthropic support for LGBTQ communities. In his role, he oversees the organization’s messaging and leads efforts to produce timely and compelling research analyzing trends, gaps, and opportunities related to LGBTQ philanthropy. Andrew specializes in using data to articulate how a range of grantmaking priorities impact LGBTQ communities and has presented research to diverse audiences throughout the sector. He is committed to creating compelling and relevant content and working to transform philanthropy to be more accountable, responsive, and impactful. Additionally, Andrew leads the organization’s broader communications and public policy agenda to pursue LGBTQ justice, promote equity, and advance racial, economic, and gender justice in the sector.

Outside of his work at Funders for LGBTQ Issues, Andrew serves on several committees and working groups, including participation in the Board Policy Committee at Nonprofit New York and the Research and Data Sharing Working Group of CHANGE Philanthropy.

Prior to joining Funders, Andrew was a Program Manager at StoryCorps, where he oversaw the launch of StoryCorps OutLoud, an initiative dedicated to documenting and amplifying the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people across the United States. He collaborated with a talented team of archivist and facilitators to build a significant collection of interviews that is today housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. He believes deeply in the power of listening and continues to be interested in the capacity of oral history to amplify unheard voices and build community.

Andrew received his B.A. from Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and lives in New York City.
