Get to know Andrew a little more below!
Why are you in Fargo?
I was born and raised here in Fargo and have always been drawn to the local and downtown community that thrives here. I just finished college at NDSU, and was looking to work at an organization that is deeply connected within the community; Emerging Prairie was the perfect opportunity!
What do you do in your free time?
I love to spend time with friends and family – whether it’s downtown Fargo or at the lake during the summer. Being surrounded by people I love is how I enjoy to spend my free time.
What’s your favorite hidden gem that you’ve discovered so far in Fargo?
I love food, so for me that would be Randy’s University Diner – the most underrated breakfast place in town.
How did you first hear about Emerging Prairie?
I first heard about Emerging Prairie after seeing events on Facebook for TEDxFargo last summer, and then after attending a 1 Million Cups event a few months ago. I saw the post about the position posted online, and felt that I would be a great fit.
As a new member of the EP team, what are you most looking forward to?
I am most looking forward to getting to work with a lot of Fargo-focused community leaders and assist with all the events that EP puts on throughout the year.
