Before coming to San Francisco four years ago, Andrew worked in a variety of roles at Nike and Mt. Hood Meadows while living in Portland, OR. After the familiar existential crisis from working traditional corporate roles, he decided to return to the Bay Area. Here he teamed up with a fellow outdoor enthusiast to start Alamere Designs, combining outdoor technology with streetwear. Trees and mountains have always held a large presence in Andrew’s life and help to inform his sustainable and functional design ideas. Growing up a constant builder and tinkerer and graduating from Santa Clara University with a B.S. in Finance & Marketing, Andrew is motivated by creating well-designed, tangible goods that resonate with people and inspire them for their next adventure.
