When you’re young at heart like Andrew, having fun is simply a way of life.

Ever the entertainer, Andrew is a talented voice-over actor and even has his own popular YouTube channel featuring his character impressions, song covers, model railways, video reviews, and much more. Finding the fun in everything he does is Andrew’s goal, and he succeeds in that every day!

Andrew’s favorite hobby is building model railways. He grew up watching Thomas the Tank Engine, which is when his love of trains began. His impressive collection of train sets ranges from his childhood toys to HO gauge sets from Bachmann, Hornby, and pretty much everything in between. His fun doesn’t stop at trains, however; Andrew also enjoys movies, cartoons, action figures, video games, and all things Disney. His all-time favorite Disney character is Jiminy Cricket! Andrew still treasures a plush Jiminy Cricket doll he’s had since he was 8 years old.

While Andrew has so much to be proud of, he is most proud of becoming a Godfather last year to his nephew, Hunter. He enjoys keeping up with the almost two-year-old and delights in his role as uncle!

“When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are,
anything your heart desires will come to you.” ~ Jiminy Cricket

Work and Play

Prior to the pandemic, Andrew held two jobs: one at an IMAX movie theater and the other at a family amusement center. Both fit right into Andrew’s fun-loving personality. Andrew says he likes having a job he enjoys and he keeps his co-workers entertained. Unfortunately, he was laid off from both jobs during the pandemic. During his time at home, Andrew adapted to new routines and kept busy with his YouTube channel, playing video games, and chatting online with family and friends. He recently started a new job at a local restaurant where he is surely entertaining his new colleagues.
