Andrew Dan-Jumbo

VP of Creativity and Lifestyle


Andrew attended St. Martin’s College of Art & Design, in England, where he graduated with a degree in Graphic Design. After graduating, moved to San Diego, California to pursue a career in professional surfing; however, after a brief stint of pursuing this dream, he returned to England to begin a career as a Graphic Designer and landed a freelance design job at the prestigious Pentagram Design Studios.

In 1991 Andrew returned to the United States, co-founded Eurotek®, a commercial and residential construction company that tackles challenging construction projects in and around Buffalo, New York, with his carpenter brother Raymond…and learnt carpentry.

As a testament to his learning aptitude and perfectionist-traits, Andrew is now known as the gifted carpenter and designer who utilizes his extraordinary carpentry and design skills on TLC’s Emmy nominated TV shows "While You Were Out" and "Trading Spaces". He has been voted by People Magazine as one of their "50 Most Beautiful", by Essence Magazine as a "2007 Do Right Man", is one of TV Guides "Hunkiest Carpenters", and is Oprah Winfrey's "favorite Handyman". Andrew is also a regular on CNN, "The View" and "The Tony Danza Show".

With all the accolades and recognition attained as a carpenter, there still is much to Andrew that meets the eye. Andrew for example, is an astute graphic designer with an uncanny eye for symmetry and detail. He is a great orator and philosopher on society and lifestyle issues; he is a philanthropist, an applied mathematician (it was his favorite subject in College, and was so good at it that one would have thought that he would eventually become a mathematician) and an uncannily-quick learner. He volunteers much of his time to local and regional charity organizations, such as "Hands On Network", "AmeriCorp", "Kaboom", "Children’s Hospice Foundation", SPCA and PETA, assisting with numerous fundraising activities; models for several upscale fashion agencies that raise funds for the "Cystic Fibrosis Foundation", and still maintains his semi-professional surfing skills.

Andrew currently hosts his own TV show called "Take Home Handyman". His hobbies include surfing, social philosophy, gadget tinkering, the arts, and philanthropy.
