Founder and CEO

Hi, I'm Andrew — the founder and CEO of Gator.

I built Gator to solve a problem I've had every day since I began work on a remote team: I want to keep our conversations in Slack, but I don't want to intrude on my coworkers after hours when they're in different time zones. After a couple years of focus, Gator is my solution.

Since Gator's launch in 2019, 2,500 people have used Gator to send more than 40,000 scheduled Slack messages. That all adds up to 400,000 hours in which compassionate coworkers respected each other's work-life balance.

On the Gator blog, I share tips and best practices from my own experience leading remote teams. Want to get in touch? Shoot me an email at
