Andy, in the full bloom of his youth and drunk on freedom, passed up a chance to get a master's degree in Environmental Science and Management (and the opportunity to, I dunno, "DO GOOD" in the world?) in order to spend nine years in LA banging around theaters, VO studios, warehouses, boats, and film sets. During this fateful time, he sopped up all of that artsy goodness, all of that creative and technical ambrosia, like a dry sponge.

Now an "adult," it is his distinct pleasure to bring the prismatic skillset he's developed to bear as a director, storyteller, actor, writer, VO talent, coffee PA, music supervisor, pop psychologist--whatever you need to bring your story to life, he's game. Big on play; keen collaborator.
