5 Things About Me: Andrew Springer

  1. I grew up in Westerly, Rhode Island where I was a soccer player and a beach bum.

  2. I spent 5 short years at Georgetown University, learning a few things but mostly running.

  3. My undergrad degree is in physics, and I did a year of grad school in Real Estate. Don’t ask why, I realize that it is a strange combination.

  4. I still play Pokemon, I don’t care if its a kids game.

  5. I have done many things in less than 4 minutes, including making a breakfast sandwich, showering, clearing 40 lines in tetris, and solving a rubix cube. Unfortunately, running a mile is not yet on the list, and I am hoping to change that in the near future.
