Andrew grew up in Vancouver, WA. just outside of Portland, Oregon. As a child and in high school, he was infamous for getting in trouble entertaining others. Despite his natural stage presence, Andrew wasn't encouraged and so never looked at Hollywood as a realistic obtainable dream.
However against all odds in Nov of 2011, Andrew began performing for The AMMS talent agency competition and interning on-stage in the West Field Mall solo for kids twice with his "Arnold Schwarzenegger Cries on B'Day" impression -in which one little girl from Kalama hugged Andrew and asked "How did you make it big as a star?" which he replied "do different things, and find out what talent you have and like in this world and do whatever it is you like". He also performed a "Prayer To Crom" for adults as well.
An imminent natural mimicker, Andrew is able to literally perform almost anything he hears as long as it's in his wide-voice range. he can do classic iconic voices such as "Elmo" (Sesame Street). L.A. CD's visiting Cast Iron Studios in Portland in 2015 said "You should take over for that guy that got caught up in that child scandal who did Elmo".
Andrew started his formal Actor training under "The Actor's Studio" (L.A.) long-time successful actor Jesse Lee Vint (III) , and the troupe that formed from Jesse's students under Randall Paul in The Portland Film Actors Studio. During and after this time (1-year) Andrew hunted-down projects landing several principle gigs. and finally 1 of 8 chosen to play a "Hero Zombie" in George C. Romero's Zombie Day Apocalypse (2017) Romero said after only one take "I like what you did...I like that...that was good".
Andrew has been cast consistently in Film, TV, Commercial, and Music Video. We look to see Andrew work as he also realizes it began with Brando and ended with Orsen Wells gathering a "round table of actors from 70's-90's and its time to get back to that again even if Andrew's mission within circles is to gather a new "round table" of actors once again....Andrew is King Arthur and must not fail.
Unique traits: Voice Mimicking and impressions - literally dozens of celebs, cartoons, and muppits. Natural animated facial expressions and does a good New Yorker East Coast performance. Collector, Articifier, and Refurbish-er of antique Damascus blades (Bringing out the "Damascus Welded-Ingots-pattern"); not to be confused with Modern remakes or Viking ingot iron blades.

Film (Sci-Fi) Actor It started with an act of terrorism: a dirty bomb -a radioactive attack on American soil that completely devastated the American mid-west and left millions dead or dying. Immediately our government looked to overseas threats -Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan... North Korea... but then the truth came. The attack was not carried out by foreign operatives, but by a coordinated effort of domestic terrorist. America was under attack by its own citizens. The government moved quickly, and with one fell swoop they seized complete control of the country, closing our borders, establishing a curfew, implementing a special police force, and regulating all aspects of our lives. They took control of the internet. Implemented a military draft, took away our firearms, and restricted all air travel. Democrats and Republicans united, and passed a law to give the government complete emergency control for the duration of the crisis. They called this law the United States Security Enforcement Act. It's been nearly... Written by Jason Hawkins
