ANDREW has always understood and appreciated the power of a good story to capture, persuade, and inspire audiences of all sizes. Fueled by a passion for history (particularly for our country’s greatest Raconteur-in-Chief, Abraham Lincoln) Andrew has honed his skills by leading countless tours over the years, from his near-history experiences on the hallowed grounds of Gettysburg and Antietam to the storied paths along Lafayette Park and the National Mall. Even after all these years in D.C., Andrew remains an eternal tourist, hardly passing an opportunity to jog through Rock Creek Park with his dog Nico, admire D.C.'s distinctive architecture, and annoy his friends and loved ones with endless anecdotes of the novel, the nifty, and the nefarious. For those visiting our fair city for the first time, seeing the Mall's monuments and museums is a must, but if you want to see a different side of the capital, Andrew suggests Lincoln's Cottage, Theodore Roosevelt Island, and the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument. Andrew looks forward to taking part in Washington Walks' 20th year of service in the D.C. area, and hopes that you will join him to learn and explore all the compelling stories this wonderful city has to offer.
