Andrew is an accomplished architectural designer with 14 years’ experience in various building types, including supertall towers, mixed-use developments, institutional and residential projects. His talents also extend into product design, having collaborated on lighting fixtures and furniture.

Since joining KPF in 2001, he has worked on several academic projects across the United States. Most recently he has led teams as the Senior Designer for Collegiate School in New York City which recently broke ground with the anticipation of opening fall of 2017. He has also recently completed Morgan State University’s Campus expansion Master Plan; the Earl G. Graves Business and Management Center, and the pedestrian bridge joining the east to west campus. Another project, University of Minnesota Science Teaching and Student Services Center, Robert H. Bruininks Hall, serves as a new gateway to the campus from the Mississippi River, and achieved LEED Gold certification with its completion in 2010. Additionally, Andrew was a contributor to the design of the award-winning Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

Andrew's close work with KPF’s founding partner, Bill Pedersen, on the design of his Shelter Island residence, along the northern shore of Long Island was a pivotal point of his career. The home’s innovative design responds to its surroundings through the placement of its sleek form, in addition to the use of indigenous construction materials. Further collaborations with Bill include “Folded Steel” a dining and coffee table set, TransFOMICA for the Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center “Architects at Play” Exhibit, Ivalo’s L’ale Pendent and Sconce, LOOP de LOOP family of tubular furniture, and the current Chandelier design exploration with Lasvits.
