Like cod, whales, and trees of eras past, ideas are the sustaining natural resource of our region’s economy today. Venture capital investors supply the money that helps some ideas become reality. Andy covers the intersection of money and innovation to uncover the most promising, interesting, disruptive ideas coming out of startup companies, universities, and incubators/accelerators; tells the stories of how their creators got where they are and where they want to go; and explains who is providing the money, how they come to their choices, and where they are looking for the next big thing.

Andy has worked at the Globe since 2014, and has also worked as a producer for BostonGlobe.com and been a breaking news and general assignment reporter and editor for the Metro section. He came to the Globe from The Baltimore Sun, where he was crime and courts editor. Andy grew up in Haverhill and graduated from UMass Amherst.
