Andrew started ELIA Life Technology with the belief that modern technology could be integrated in novel, intuitive ways to benefit people who are blind or have a visual impairment. Through ELIA Life Technology, Andrew invited the ELIA Frames, a new font based on the standard Roman alphabet and designed for maximum tactile discrimination by people who have a visual impairment. Since ELIA launched, Andrew has led the company’s operations, including product development, grant writing, product support, fundraising and stakeholder outreach efforts. Under his leadership, the company has attracted and leveraged roughly $495,000 in investors financing to win $2.5 million in SBIR product development grants, and to prepare for the upcoming launch the company’s suite of products.
