Greg Andrews is a nationally recognized and award-winning glass mosaic specialist and pool tile expert. Starting as a tile installer in 1973, working in residential and commercial work, Greg became fascinated with glass mosaics and shifted his focus to roman tubs, domes and murals, which eventually led him to his first all tile pool in 1994. This began a 20+ year relationship with the pool industry and to date Greg has completed hundreds of all tile pools, spas and water features. While keeping active in installations, Greg’s focus in the past decade has slowly turned towards industry involvement in the form of teaching, lecturing, training and consulting. He’s also manages a pool tile technical committee through National Tile and Stone Authority, an industry organization that he co-founded.
