Andrew has particularly deep experience writing about legal and policy matters at all levels and to a broad range of audiences. From appellate briefs in state and federal courts to blog postings or website copy, Andrew specializes in presenting complex information in a straightforward and accessible manner that is appropriate to the specified audience.
A wide range of other areas that intersect with policy are also comfortably within Andrew's wheelhouse. For example, he can draw from past professional experience in discussing a range of scientific topics (including those related to ecology, the environment, and psychology), history, investing, and finance.
Along with nonfiction and analytical writing, Andrew has written poetry for many years. Beyond writing, his interests include cooking, gardening, hiking, and music. He plays the drums and, less competently, the guitar.
This degree was earned after obtaining a juris doctorate elsewhere. Although NYU Law does not issue class rank, it does provide an estimate based on the GPAs of members of the combined J.D./LL.M class. By that measure, Andrew finished in the top 5%.
Andrew has an extensive background in the legal world. He has written all types of litigation-related documents, as well as other legal documents (such as contracts and wills). He is fully competent to work with even the most complex materials in several areas of law, including those affecting property and several regulated industries.
Andrew has nearly a decade of experience working in higher education. He is familiar with many of the issues, concerns, and opportunities that arise in this setting. In addition, Andrew has personally created multiple courses, contributed to significant texts, and authored both academic work and promotional materials for educational institutions.
Matters related to government are among Andrew's strongest knowledge areas based on his personal experience. He has experience with executive agency regulation, the courts, and legislative processes.
