Andrew was born at Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth, Texas. He spent the first twenty-two years of his life as an Air Force Brat. During this time he lived in three different countries (Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America) and five different states (Texas, New Jersey, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Alabama.)
Andrew's primary education was completed via both public and homeschool. He went to a British Public School for two years and Department of Defense School for half a year during his family’s time in the UK. When they returned to the US, his mother began homeschooling him and my brothers. This continued through his High School graduation in 2005. After completing High School, Andrew completed trade school through the INTEGRITY Construction Institute in Northwest Arkansas and completed the Arkansas Fire Academy. He started his formal secondary education at Columbia Southern University where he completed my A.A.S. in Business.
