Based in Boston, he focuses on supporting the improvement of Second Nature’s Climate Leadership Network programs, aiding signatories of the Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitments in the reporting of their implementation progress on climate or resilience goals, managing database maintenance of signatory information on the Second Nature Salesforce CRM & Reporting Platform, and developing data for grant reports and internal tracking.
Prior to joining Second Nature, Andy worked for the University of New Hampshire’s Sustainability Institute (UNHSI, 17-18) as a research assistant, where he developed an improved method for calculating mobile emissions factors for nitrogen and methane and helped launch the Sustainability Indicator Management and Analysis Platform (SIMAP).

He also co-founded Half-Acre Beekeeping (est. 2017)– a network of environmentally sustainable micro-apiaries based on the NH Seacoast. Half-Acre was born out of Andy and his partner’s first-place entry in the 2017 NH Social Venture Innovation Challenge.
