Andy was born in Los Angeles on November 22, 1965 to Donna Divine and was adopted and raised by Val and Holly. He graduated from Lanier High School. Andy had most recently been Chief Operations Officer of TourPro, Inc.
Andy was creative at heart and had a deep passion for music, art and photography, from hosting his own radio show, to DJ'ing at some of Austin's top night clubs in the early 90's, to writing his own music and podcasting in most recent years. Andy was also a lover of electronics, travel, romance, children and animals alike. He was incredibly bright, funny and had a passion for helping others. He was heavily involved in recovery efforts with Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Andy truly had a heart of gold, putting others before himself.

We knew Andy briefly during the late 80s / and 90s. And later via Facebook. But my memory of Andy is of someone who was genuine. He was a person who enjoyed engaging conversation on any number of topics. He was always calm and made you feel relaxed if you were with him. And then there was the time when he looked after Zera on one of "those" night's out with some of the crew when I was out of town. He stepped in unsolicited to ensure a measure of safety was included with the revelry. I am eternally grateful for him caring for my loved one when I wasn't there. Our deepest, sincerest condolences go out to Andy's family and loved ones. We are besides ourselves with surprise and sadness. Thank you, Andy. Rest peacefully.
