Born and raised in Toronto, Andrew is a two-bit voice actor and writer who is preparing for his book to be released in early December. An avid collector of miscellaneous factoids, Andrew is always prepared and (overly) willing to share trivial information about a wide array of inconsequential subjects, and was able to spell inconsequential on his first try thanks to his incredible talent as an unpublished author. He can also name all the national capitals of in Europe, which is pretty impressive, if you ask him. Sadly, nobody ever does. Ever.
