    Program Manager l - EV Promotion

    Andrew leads the team of all stars in EV Promotion at Ecology Action. This team brings talent and energy to the work of building equity in the EV transition space. Andrew’s commitment to climate work is inspired by a love for the ocean and other wild places. His understanding of how people are affected by climate change was deepened when dozens of friends lost homes in the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA in 2018.

    Andrew has two decades of experience in a variety of non-profit agencies spanning outdoor recreation, religious work, political advocacy, affordable housing and homeless services, and environmental conservation. When not working, you will find Andrew and his partner playing outside – surfing, running, cycling, hiking – or reading quietly at home.
