Meet NASJE Member Andrew Cano

Welcome to Andrew Cano of Nebraska!

What was your path to judicial education?
I worked in the library field for 15 years, the last 9 of which were as an academic librarian. During this time, I worked a lot with nontraditional learners and, gradually, my work focused on online education. About a year ago or so, I realized I wanted to take my career in a different direction as I was working at a traditional research university and just missed working with adult learners. My wife, an attorney, recommended judicial education and I’m excited to be part of this field!

How long have you worked at your organization?
I just started in February.

If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
While things like “President of the United States” and “NFL quarterback” sprang to mind, I think I would go with astronaut as they are our modern-day explorers.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
I like to hike, run, read, watch movies, and play video games. Most of all, I love spending time with family, especially my three nephews, whom I’ve gotten into vintage Nintendo games.

What’s your favorite movie? 
I’ve always disliked this question because I consider it akin to asking, “Who’s your favorite child?” I’m a big movie fan and each film and genre is different so I can’t say I have a “favorite” one. However, in recent years, I have really enjoyed the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and the Dark Knight trilogy as they have conveyed some powerful messages and created very memorable characters.
