Andrew has extensive experience in adaptive program development and implementation.

As Program Manager of Easter Seals' Camp Horizon, he created several adaptive outdoor programs that facilitate adventure experiences for children and adults with various physical, cognitive and medical needs. In this role, he was responsible for content development, risk management, staff on-boarding, technical training, and program evaluation.

As regional Executive Director of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind Foundation, Andrew led the local transformation of this 100-year-old charity through a complex re-design of its core program offerings to better support those living with blindness and low vision. In this, he served as the lead for charitable operations through strategic planning, change management, stakeholder relations, and operational oversight.

But most importantly, Andrew is also a proud father of two children, one of whom lives with special needs. His son was born very prematurely at 26 weeks, 1lb 2oz (515g) and was diagnosed with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy, which affects his muscle movements and speech. Andrew's greatest hope for his son is he will always see and explore his own ability.
