Andrew is an author, humorist, and a 20-year veteran of creative campaigns for social change. He co-founded the 2004 media sensation "Billionaires for Bush." He's written a few books, including two books of "serious" humor published by W. W. Norton: "Daily Afflictions" and "Life's Little Deconstruction Book." He's at work on two others: "Wherever You Go, They're Already There," about the ironies of adventure travel when there's no elsewhere anymore; and "Enlightned Machismo," about the odd challenges men face in a "post-feminist" world. His writing has appeared in The Nation, The Village Voice, Salon.com, Marie Claire, and elsewhere. For part of his bread and butter he's been training the next generation of creative activists. For another part, he's a founding partner of Agit-Pop Communications, a "subvertising" agency cranking out award-winning flash animation and on-line video for environmental & social justice campaigns. Last year he co-produced "The Oil Enforcement Agency," a mini-mockumentary on global warming (think Inconvenient Truth meets Spinal Tap). This year he co-wrote and produced "Stop the Clash of Civilizations," which became the 2nd most discussed political video on youtube ever – woo-hoo. He lives in New York with his wee laptop.
