As a freshman in college, Andrew witnessed deadly gun violence firsthand. When Andrew tried to seek police assistance, it was Andrew who was arrested, after Andrew refused to let a uniformed police officer finish his dinner as a man lay dying not more than ten feet away. Shortly after that tragic and life-changing moment, Andrew knew he wanted a career advocating for those who cannot advocate for themselves.
Andrew quickly changed his college major to Criminal Justice and founded the first Criminal Justice Honor Society at the University of Cincinnati. Following graduation, Andrew began law school and later graduated from Case Western Reserve University.
