Andreas’s passion for civic engagement began with witnessing racial and economic inequality on the streets of San Francisco, his hometown. In part because his mother is an immigrant from Nicaragua, Andreas became involved in helping local communities, particularly Latinx communities. When studying in Berlin, Andreas witnessed the refugee crisis that was occurring and saw the desperation from young people who wanted to help but had no idea how to begin. Using his experience from working with nonprofits and startups in the transportation and edu-tech sectors, he founded DiveIn to empower would-be community champions to realize their potential to make an impact. In his spare time, Andreas can be found in the outdoors, volunteering, or playing the beautiful game.
