Andrew graduated last June from Portland State University in Oregon with a degree in microbiology. He has resided for most of his life in nearby Beaverton Oregon. He is really looking forward to getting outdoors again this summer, and away from civilization. Andrew is excited to work in a large group setting again. He was pleasantly surprised to find the Adirondacks are an excellent location to support one of his favorite hobbies, rock climbing. He is eager to meet more people interested in going climbing with him, even offering the use of his gear.
