Andy is a semi-retired member of the research faculty at the California Institute of Technology.  He is past president of the San Gabriel Valley Branch of the Cymbidium Society of America, the Vice President of the CSA Board and an Associate Judge for the CSA.

One of his major goals is to introduce orchid hobbyists to the wonderful body of biological information that underlies their pursuits.
