Our Team

The News Unspun is comprised of a team of volunteers with one single mission: 

To Summarize the News Without Fluff, Opinion, or Bias.

 
Andrew DeCotiis-Mauro— Co-Founder

Andrew DeCotiis-Mauro— Co-Founder

Andrew is a voracious reader and thinker. He has studied chemistry, where he learned to think critically about almost everything. Andrew has been an educator for longer than he cares to admit, starting with tutoring, secondary education and even as an adjunct professor of physics. He interned in research and business analytics at the same paper notebook company for which James worked. After the notebook stint, he studied data science at one of those highly competitive bootcamps. His passion for good information and clear understanding nudged him into starting The News Unspun.
