Hi, all. I'm Andy, a life sojourner, artist, activist, and entrepreneur living with my family here in Yokohama. After about twenty years of solid practice in adventures and misadventures, I found myself living in Japan and working as the Asia regional window display manager for Forever 21. Life is strange.
I realized working a corporate job was not for me though and I wanted to do something more with myself. I knew for myself, and I know this is true for most of us, that I was probably not fully tapping my human potential or directing my efforts it in the most beneficial ways. So I set out to change it. Now, I have a consulting business for US residential solar installers and green builders and am building another business that helps both nonprofits and small businesses prosper through co-venture relationships.
I still love to make art and give myself some time to paint whenever I've finished some important work.
I'm also a huge nature fan, work sporadically with groups like Greenpeace and others around environmental and social justice issues and make vision boards where I am living in Zen inspired natural beauty in the Pacific Northwest of the US.
That's it. Pleased to meet you.
