Through a competitive audition process, Andrew has been accepted to the Theatre Performance  B.F.A. Program at Niagara University.

Andrew has starred in GODSPELL, GUYS AND DOLLS, and PYGMALION at his high school and has held roles in HMS PINAFORE, CRAZY FOR YOU, TREASURE ISLAND, and BYE BYE BIRDIE at Lancaster Opera House
