Founder and CEO of Verono Homes.
Andrew has always been one to seek a better future and a strong foundation. After several hardships and a few lessons, after attending junior college at LA Valley College, Andrew graduated from USC in 1999 with a Bachelors in Business Administration. He cultivated a work ethic that was part hustle and part activist for the common man. He did this by deciding to leave his comfortable corporate job at IBM to pursue a career in real-estate. As luck would have it, his first real-estate deal turned into a house flipping project with Tom Lewis, the father of well-known Bravo reality star, Jeff Lewis of Flipping Out. This project was the starting point and lead Andrew, to develop a diversified portfolio that includes; single home developments, multi-home projects, and the highly anticipated Outline at NoHo project in North Hollywood. Born and raised in Los Angeles, his love for the city and his daily interaction with LA’s underestimated pocket neighborhoods allows him to share his vision of how to live in LA.
