Andrew completed his Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University in 2022. He grew up around Thunder Bay, staying long enough to become an engineer before stepping out. An explorer at heart, Andrew has done a few laps around the globe and landed in India and Tajikistan while working with Médecins Sans Frontières. Since returning home he has given much attention to martial arts and the inner journey which accompanies that training. Andrew can often be found trudging through snow, scrambling rocks, or scanning reddit for an interesting talk.
