AUTHOR, ACTOR, ASPIRING VIKING
Andrew was born in 1987 in Catskill, NY. A first-generation American, he was raised in a household of Austrian immigrants, and grew up yodeling, eating plenty of schnitzel, and wearing lederhosen. *
In 1994, his family moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where Andrew currently makes his home. He has been a long-standing, dedicated member of the local theatre community, having worked extensively with Riot Act inc., Off Square Theatre Company, and Jackson Hole Community Theater as an actor, director and playwright.
Andrew is best known as the writer and director of the Jackson-based theatrical trilogy, “I Can Ski Forever”, which sheds light on the eccentricities of life in a modern ski town. The third installment, an original full-length musical, premiered March 2017 at the Pink Garter Theatre to universal acclaim.
An avid traveler to Iceland, he has worked as a whale watching guide in Akureyri, and a sous chef in a remote, rural fjord on the East Coast. in August 2017, Andrew presented at TEDx Jackson Hole, an independently-produced TED Talk event, and spoke on battling depression and using his many trips to Iceland as a form of personal healing.
As a novelist, he is represented by Sarah LaPolla of Bradford Literary Agency.
