Andres lives, works, and plays in Red Bank. He is married to a lovely school teacher, which is why he is going to be extra careful with his grammar while be blogs. He is the proud father of two darling daughters aged 11 months and three years, which is why he may write in a silly and sleep-deprived style. Also, because he is a parent, he may occasionally write in a stern lecturing style (if so, please use the comments field to remind me that you are all adults here). Andres holds a B.S. (no giggling, please) degree in Environmental Science and a Masters of City and Regional Planning, concentrating in Environmental Planning. He works as an environmental consultant dealing with issues including soil and groundwater contamination fate and transport, brownfields regeneration, and trying to come in under budget while fulfilling the client’s every whim and demand. To give back to his community (in addition to paying property taxes on time), Andres serves on the Red Bank Environmental Commission and organizes a local chapter of Green Drinks. Andres is also adept at writing about himself in the third person.
