andrew-2-frameAndrew Benenati – Director of Field Operations

I joined the Furbish team in 2013, bringing my excitement and passion for innovation and a “green tomorrow” to the firm. Previously, the Program Director of a DC based green nonprofit, my experience in green building, design, and construction benefit me while atop the roofs of our urban environment. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture at the University of Maryland, College Park, and enjoyed all my five years (yes, that includes my victory lap) rooting for my Terps. I have realized over the years that I can’t be held in one place, I have to constantly be active, exploring and trying new things. I have been lucky enough to travel around the world with the most incredible family and friends, and am always planning my “next vacation”. When I’m not on the rooftop, I can be found camping, traveling, at sporting events, playing kickball or soccer, or spending time with friends.

Favorite Quote: Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today. – James Dean
or “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon
Favorite Sporting Event: FIFA World Cup
