Andrew grew up in New York but found his way to Tampa after graduating from Binghamton University with a bachelor’s degree in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior. He grew up in and around the water as an active competitive swimmer and nature enthusiast. Having been connected to water throughout his life he considers himself lucky to have grown up near the Hudson River in New York, searching for sea life during low-tide in Lewes, Deleware, snorkeling the Belizean Barrier Reef on several occasions and braving the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay.
He now calls St. Petersburg, Florida, home with his wife Amanda, and their dog Gaby and cats Rambo and Zelda. They enjoy living in a city that is connected with the water in many ways and spend their downtime walking along coffee pot bayou and kayaking throughout the bay. He is also an award-winning homebrewer and self-proclaimed beer nerd. Andrew is a human resources professional for Pricewaterhouse Cooper in Tampa and is in the process of completing a master’s of Business Administration degree from the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.
