About Andrew

I'm an engineer by education, a business manager on paper, and a dreamer, hard worker, and visionary in life. I see potential in things others call trash. I make connections in the seemingly polar opposite. I find roundabout ways to do things people thought were impossible. I want you to help me on my next journey to prove them wrong. What would be the point of living if we weren't trying to change the world?

My team and I are building a mobile app that consolidates experiences across a variety of existing products to help as consumers and business owners connect. Our product will help everyday users make decisions on where and when to spend their time and money saving them some of both in the process; it will also provide owners of brick and mortar establishments the opportunity to connect with their current and prospective customers in a brand new way and will give them data to assist in optimizing day to day operations and large scale marketing initiatives.

If I've peaked your interest shoot me an email at the address below with some information about yourself, why you are interested in my project/what I have to say, and what you can bring to the table.

Work Experience

Business Manager

Capital One Financial

July 2015 - Today

After graduating college I began at Capital One as a Business Analyst (BA). I have been promoted twice in 2.5 years there (to a level that requires 3 promotions if you are in any job family other than BA), and I have worked on a variety of projects in many roles. I started as a internal management/strategy consultant developing the top of house strategy for the Auto Finance and Home Loans divisions and managing messaging up to the Board of Directors and CEO. I then worked on valuations for our mortgage line of business (LOB) and the strategy that such numbers drive. Currently, I work for the Auto Finance LOB. I manage day to day operations of a tech team of six people plus two Data Scientists to ensure that the work they do aligns with an ever evolving strategy as we work to develop a new product for our dealership partners.
