In Chapter 1 of 17 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview, Andrew Hutson answers "What is Getting Easier and What is Getting Harder in Your Life?" Hutson better understands how he works and, as a result, has achieved an improved work-life balance. He notes the increasing challenge of dealing with and responding to failures. As he advances his career, Hutson feels more is at stake in the failures, takes them more personally, and finds the recovery process longer and more difficult. Hutson is a senior project manager at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), where he advises corporate partners such as Wal-Mart on sustainable supply chain initiatives. Hutson holds a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an MEM from the Duke University Nicholas School of the Environment. He earned his BA from Michigan State University.
