After graduating with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Andrew went straight into…. you guessed it….not mechanical engineering.
Instead, he joined a nonprofit org where he learned a ton about frugality, leadership, trust, and what it means to be a team player. He’d then go on to join startups in RDU before going back to school for technology commercialization. While in school, he tried and failed to launch 3 different products but leveraged his experience to break into the competitive field of Product Management in Big Tech. Now Andrew shares his experiences with aspiring product managers on Linkedin about how to build side products to break into the same.
On the weekends, you’ll catch Andrew at the park with his dog and daughter, at the with his wife, or at the NC State football tailgate.
