Who is Andrew Thomas?
I’m an entrepreneur focused on creating meaningful companies and products. As a founder of SkyBell, an internet of things company, I’m making homes and neighborhoods safer with a video doorbell you answer from a smartphone.

As a person, I live the process of personal evolution – continually striving to be the best expression of myself.
