Hi. I'm Andrew. I'm the Director of Marketing for Nature's Bakery. I also write for The Goods: Inside Nature's Bakery Blog and am your key tweep on twitter @naturesbakery. That's my weekly gig. When I'm not at "The Bakery", I like to spend time with my family and enjoy the privilege of being a dad. I'm currently working on a novel (slowly but surely), I play acoustic guitar and tennis to decompress and explore my creative side. And I jump at any chance to go eat sushi. I think I'm addicted.
