After years of studying Art history and Fine Arts in Siena, Italy and receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education, Andrew began teaching Art in the public schools. Budget cuts led to a move to Manhattan, the dubious worlds of food service, retail display, attempts at off and off-off Broadway, and finally a come back to art and the beginning of a Costume Design career with Starlight Productions in Naples, Florida.

Five years, over a hundred shows, and several oppressive hot summers later, he returned to the cool of the North, and finally to Boston where he has maintained a busy career designing and teaching for schools, Colleges and Universities, Professional Theatres and Opera throughout the country.

Some of Andrew's design credits include DIE FLEDERMAUS for Boston Lyric Opera, THE HEIRESS and THE MISER for Boston's Lyric Stage, and ROMEO AND JULIET for Milwaukee's Skylight Opera Company and Wisconsin public television. A highlight was designing BLO's acclaimed CARMEN, presented for two nights under a full moon over the Boston Common to an audience of over one hundred fifty thousand people.

His work in television began with Lisa Wolfinger and The History Channel with WITCH HUNT and lead to other projects including THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE MAYFLOWER, History Channel's most watched marquis movie to that time and NOVA's POCAHONTAS REVEALED , celebrating the 400th Anniversary of the Jamestown Settlement. Andrew's feature film work started with assisting the venerable Costume Designer Gary Jones on Disney's UNDERDOG and has continued  work on such pictures as '21' , THE PROPOSAL,  and THE ORIGIN OF LYING. He designed costumes for Animus Film's DON MCKAY, starring Elizabeth Shue, Melissa Leo, and Thomas Hayden-Church.

This year, Andrew assisted costume designer Mark Bridges on THE FIGHTER, and worked with designer Mona May creating costumes for THE ZOOKEEPER.

Andrew is a member of United Scenic Artists  Local 829 and IATSE Local 481.
