Andrew has been working on the rover payload as the payload team lead. He is studying aerospace engineering and is originally from Cumming, Georgia. Andrew first became interested in engineering when he was 12 years old and participated in FIRST Lego League and FIRST Robotics competitions. He decided on Rocket Design because it seemed like a fun way to really get to use everything that he had been taught in his classes. After graduation, Andrew plans to continue working at AMRDEC working on tactical missile simulations. He also plans on attending the University of Alabama in Huntsville for graduate school where he will specialize in Aerospace Systems. When Andrew isn’t working on the rover, he enjoys playing concert euphonium, trombone, and saxophone, speaking Russian, reading fantasy books from authors like Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, and unicycling.
