Andrew Rogers

Allergies Community Advocate Andrew RogersAndrew Rogers’s friends often joke that he’s allergic to everything—he's deathly allergic to peanuts and tree nuts, and animal dander, dust mites, pollen, most trees, and flowers, Disperse Blue 106 dye, and two chemicals common in most soaps and detergents all give him hives.

He’s never used his EpiPen, but he’s been scolded by ER doctors on multiple occasions for not using it when he should have.

He hopes, perhaps naively, that gene editing like CRISPR will one day allow him and his fiancée to adopt a corgi, at which time they'll move into a house with a big yard. Until then, Andrew lives in New York City, where he loves to cook, read, and play tabletop roleplaying games.
