About Andy

I am an actor in Chicago Illinois. My acting experience includes roles on NBC's Chicago Fire, FOX's Empire, and The Onion. I have worked in commercials, voice-over, film, and theater. I had the pleasure of performing improv at colleges across America with the group Mission IMPROVable.

I have also written content for television while working as a special correspondent for the Big Ten Network. When I'm not acting I am busy serving with a multi-cultural blend of co-workers and customers in one of Chicago's most iconic restaurants. For fun I write sketch comedy and host a weekly podcast.

Ideas, imagination, and communication are my livelihood. I love the pure creativity in turning a blinking cursor on an empty screen into an engaging story. I have traveled the world and I know how lonely and frustrated a person can feel when they are unable to communicate with those around them. The most meaningful moments for me at my restaurant job come from the cultural exchanges I share with my friends and co-workers. I love to help others grow more confident and familiar with the English language.

Do you have to deliver a speech in class, or for work? I can help you with a few basic breathing exercises to build a clear and commanding speaking voice and the confidence to overcome stage fright. We can use some improv techniques to punch up your content and find humor in any subject. If you have a paper to write we can explore various persuasive styles and structures to shape your thoughts into a clear and cohesive argument. Perhaps you are struggling with creative writing? I am happy to share a universal, five-point narrative structure with you. Are you knew to America and the English language? Lets sit down for some one-on-one conversation. We will look at the common occurrences you encounter in daily life and build from there.

Your ideas are already great. I want to help you apply those ideas to time-tested structures. Let's get you and your audience on the same page.
