He also has a degree in art direction from The Creative Circus, one of the nation’s preeminent portfolio schools. He also follows sumo wrestling.

Before joining The Richards Group, Andy spent four years in Japan teaching English, learning Japanese, bumming around Asia, and authoring and illustrating a popular comic strip.
