Andrew 's early influences include Pink floyd, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, U2, and Alice In Chains. In particular, after hearing the album “Surfing With the Alien” by Joe Satriani, Andrew’s passion for music and the guitar took a dramatic turn. Soon he began discovering artists such as Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, John Petrucci and Dream Theater, Zakk Wylde, and many other guitar masters. As a teenager, Andrew was determined to become a virtuoso guitarist and composer.
Andrew has performed in a variety of settings, both as a solo performer and as a member of larger ensembles. In May 2013 he took part in the “Guitar Center Blues Masters” competition performing an instrumental version of Joe Bonamassa’s hit “Dust Bowl”. In summer 2014, Andrew was a participant in the first G4 Event hosted by Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, and Mike Kineally. Additionally, he took part in an almost 2 week long Guitar Mastery Training Event where he spent over 10 hours a day honing his skills in Illinois.
