CEO of Atomo Coffee
Andy started an Internet company on a 14.4k modem, a mobile payments company before the iPhone, and now he’s onto something so new he can’t tell you about it yet, but you’ll want to take it with you to Mars.
He is a pioneer, leader and mentor across multiple disciplines, from consumer products to payments. Twenty three years ago Andy and his wife started their first tech company, WeddingChannel.com, and he’s been hooked on start-ups ever since. Over the past fifteen years Andy has founded several payment technology companies (Buck, Beckon, Coffee Like a Rock Star), and spent a few years at Amazon Payments, innovating a mobile wallet technology pilot program.
Most recently, Andy founded a fin-tech company to improve the financial well-being of low-to-moderate income households.
Andy loves boating around Puget Sound and is currently an advisor for a stealthy synthetic biology start-up, travel software company and the University Washington Masters in Entrepreneurship program.
