Andy fashions himself a theological librarian combing his graduate studies (MLIS and MDiv) and his pursuit to identify the most microscopic of marketplaces. A converted East Coaster, Andy returned to the Midwest upon choosing to follow his partner to Second First Church where she was called to be the Senior Pastor. Typically on the hunt for some new thought or revelation, Andy was drawn to participation and leadership in untraditional ministries in Center City Philadelphia, an experience that continues to shape his thinking and approach to Christian living. Andy’s hobbies are finding ways to stay fit while simultaneously trying to avoid injuries, striving to become an amateur chef, pretending to be well read, supporting underdog sports teams (notably the Cubs and Everton Football Club), being raised by his children and changing his mind.
