Andrew has always been passionate about leadership. As an athlete he was consistently voted team captain and received numerous awards throughout his playing and coaching career. He believes that leadership is very subjective and can be revealed through self inquiry and exploration. Andrew has worked extensively with Youth and developed the successful Utown@UBC Youth Leadership Program for 30 resident youth ages 13-18. He has received several grants for the facilitation of the program from both the BC Parks and Recreation Board as well as Participaction.
