A native of Passaic, New Jersey, Andrew is the youngest of two brothers and one sister.

While attending William Paterson University in 2004, Andrew landed his first on-air gig reporting for a public access music video show in New Jersey. He got his foot in the door landing interviews with several then-up and coming artists like T-Pain, Ciara and Pitbull.

Andrew would later land freelance jobs at several local TV stations in New York where he would learn all about the back end of production, working as a writer and producer. Along the way he has made pit stops at NY1, The Montel Williams Show, HBO Sports, WNYW FOX 5 and WPIX-TV.

It was at WPIX-TV where he made his on-air debut, filing feature and entertainment stories for the PIX News At Ten and PIX Morning News.

In 2009, he was honored with a New York Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Host/Anchor/Reporter. In 2012, he was nominated again for the PIX Morning News segment he reported and produced, Live Fine on 99.
