He said he is excited to start working with members, "My experience in the tourism industry pales in comparison to the decades of work that has been done at ABC Creative Group that has touched nearly every corner of NYS with tourism campaigns."

Andrew is a lifelong Central New York resident, born in Syracuse. He says building his life and career here has been an absolute pleasure. “I've traveled all across this great state, from yearly summer vacations as a boy at Thousand Island Park, to regular trips to the Finger Lakes wine country, the racetrack in Saratoga or Green Lakes state park in my own neck of the woods. This is my home and I love the rich history and culture around every corner." Outside the office, he likes to spend his time with his two sons and his wife. In wintertime, he mostly watches movies, goes to museums, the zoo, etc. in the summer he loves hanging out by the pool, going on beach vacations, and regular visits to the great nearby parks and nature trails.
