Co-founder of TeachBoost

Pittsburgh, PA

Technologist, lawyer, and amateur craftsman.
I'm passionate about clean design and simple living.


Hi, my name is Andrew Gioia.

A few years ago I started an educational technology company called TeachBoost with my brother, Mike, and friend, Jason. We make web-based development and reporting tools for K-12 schools so that they can leverage their professional development into something wonderful for their educators and students. Day to day I work remotely in Philadelphia to manage our customer engagement, maintain the brand/design of the app, and run the operations-side of things.

Prior to TeachBoost I was an attorney for two years at a law firm in Philadelphia. I graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 2010 and Cornell University in 2007. I grew up outside Philadelphia and currently love living near the art museum.

In my free time I enjoy building data-visualization tools, tinkering with our growing home automation setup, learning Italian and woodworking, and spending as much time as possible with my beautiful wife, Beth, and our dog, Maggie.

Take a look below for some of the things I work(ed) on and please don't hesitate to say hi!
