Andrew Dan-Jumbo, Designer
Named in May 2003 as one of People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People," Andrew Dan-Jumbo had no idea that he would become an overnight sex symbol by utilizing his exceptional carpentry skills on WHILE YOU WERE OUT.
Born in Nigeria and raised in Shoreham, a coastal town near London, England, Andrew attended London's St. Martin's College of Art & Design, then moved to San Diego, California, where he honed his surfing skills. After a few years, Andrew returned to England where he began a career as a freelance graphic designer. In 1991, Andrew returned to the U.S. and, with his brother, co-founded Eurotek, a commercial and residential construction company that specializes in historic restorations and new home developments in Buffalo, New York. In addition to his extensive contracting projects, Andrew regularly volunteers his time modeling (for charity functions — cystic fibrosis, in particular) for upscale high-fashion agencies in upstate New York — a vocation he's been involved in since college. When he's not building and designing for WHILE YOU WERE OUT, Andrew enjoys cooking, surfing and anything else that's remotely athletic. Andrew is single and resides in Buffalo.
He's appeared on Oprah, and has graced the pages of TV Guide several times.
