My name is Andy.
I am a writer, filmmaker, wanderer, poet, imagineer, bibliophile, cinephile and all-around adventurer. I have two degrees in film, and am currently employed in the education technology field.
I decided that it was about time I started cataloging my adventures, and recording my thoughts in a place where – perhaps – others might like to read them.
I entertain a colorful background of multimedia experiences in both my work and personal life. I have always put my heart and soul into what I do – regardless of what that might be. I try to approach my life, my hobbies, and my work with passion. It feels pointless to drag myself through the day and not take pride in the effort that I have made to impact the world around me.
I have tried to keep my professional life as adventurous as my private goings-on. I have worked as a Zamboni driver, a cobbler, a comicbook artist, and so many other “odd” jobs.
A little behind the curve, I decided to return to an education and found myself immersed in film school. After 3 years of classes, work and daydreaming, I set out with a co-conspirator and in 2012 we independently produced Atlas, a superhero short film about 45 minutes in length.
Today, I flex my skills as “chief videographer and media specialist”: developing video and graphic content for partners, writing scripts, directing talent for video and audio segments and putting it all together in a presentation format for the viewing audience. Away from the office though, I am always working on something else.
In June 2013, I wrapped and released my first novel, Empty Hallways, a project that had been devouring my time and energy for the previous six months. It is currently available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats.
Where am I going next? What adventures are in store? You’ll just have to wait and see.
