Andy was born and raised in Denver and formed Westside Investment Partners in 1998, with a desire to make a positive impact on the rapidly growing city and the people who lived there. Andy’s passion for helping others was cultivated early in life when he served as a camp counselor at Easterseals, a passion that has defined his approach to community building and development throughout his career.
Andy formed Westside with a simple principle – development with a conscience. Westside strives to develop projects that generate new opportunities and create communities that will stand the test of time.
As a Denver native and long-time resident, Andy is committed to investing in the next generation. He currently serves on the board of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and the 2020 Leadership Denver class. He has previously served on the board of Children’s Hospital and Jewish Family Services. He is also the co-founder and primary sponsor of the Fall Feast, a group that puts on an annual event to provide job training, health care, clothing, and other services for families in need.
Andy attended the University of Colorado on a scholarship and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He has been actively involved in real estate acquisitions and management since 1990, and prior to forming Westside, he worked for Donaldson, Lufkin, and Jenrette, which was later acquired by Credit Suisse, in the DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners Group.
Since its founding Westside has acquired and sold over $2 billion in asset classes including office, retail, apartments, industrial, mobile home parks, and more. Westside has more recently focused on larger, master-planned community projects where they can have a greater impact including High Point at DIA, Loretto Heights, and Victory Ridge.
Andy's hobbies include traveling and athletics. Andy is a competitive boxer who has competed both as an amateur in Golden Gloves and professionally, where he was ranked as high as the 209th best heavyweight in the United States by BoxRec.
