From an early age, Andrew began privately studying Theater, dance and music with various professionals and professors in the New england areA. Ranking as one of the best young musicians in the country, Andrew made his Carnegie Hall debut when he turned seventeen. That same year, Andrew received a generous scholarship to be used for any educational purpose in the performing Arts, which he decided to use to open a non-profit Theater company and begin his career as a Theater director. as one of the first students to be admitted into its Commonwealth Honors College, Andrew attended the University of Massachusetts, amherst on a President's Performing Arts Scholarship, and studied music performance, music composition and Theater. While there, he created New england's first long-form improvisation ensemble, and directed and performed numerous productions, many of which were original works, workshopped under his direction. after moving to Chicago to begin his professional career, Andrew co-created the show Be Frank, an improvised, absurdist play, which went on to tour the North American continent and was featured at more than ten Theater festivals. Soon afterwards, Andrew was made an ensemble Member of the annoyance Theatre where he became one of their resident directors. During that time, Andrew co-created and produced the 2006 FringeNYC "Outstanding Musical" award winner, 58! a Comedy about Bike Messengessengering, and co-wrote and directed the critical hit Love is Dead: a NecRomantic Musical Comedy which went on to break box office records for the annoyance Theatre, earn a personal invitation to the 2008 Spoleto Festival in Charleston and won Outstanding Music and Lyrics at the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival. He followed Love is Dead by directing a modern retelling of the French Revolution, KXVI: the Rock Revolution, which TimeOut Chicago referred to as "conceptual brilliance!" Over the years, Andrew has directed at professional, regional Theaters outside of Chicago, guest lectured at Universities and High Schools, provided script-doctoring services, and run a successful business-consulting firm. the New Colony is his latest project, and the true culmination of his professional experiences in both business and the performing Arts.
