Technical Director Pit Rho Motorsports
“Understanding Multimedia Rights Fees in Sports”
Former RA at the Richmond Federal Reserve and founder of RACINGnomics.com
Andrew is a graduate of Kansas State University, who earned an M.A. in Economics at Wichita State University.
Andrew developed data-driven methods to evaluate the motorsports business landscape. He shared much of his research on RACINGnomics.com (and previously NASCARnomics.com). This endeavor evolved into consulting motorsports organizations to help them enhance the value of their teams and schedules. Since mid-2014, Andrew has worked at Pit Rho Corporation to create mathematical models and tools that optimize the business decisions of various sports series and television networks. At Pit Rho, they apply "Moneyball" concepts to locate inefficiencies in the media rights market.
