Andrew dedicated his life and career to law enforcement and serving his community and country. He began his civil servant career as a Police Officer in the 6th District of Washington D.C.. From there he moved to Federal Law Enforcement serving on the Supreme Court Police Force. After 9/11, he felt the call to serve his country in another capacity and applied for and was accepted into the Federal Air Marshal program at the Department of Homeland Security.

He always enjoyed hiking and camping and took the boys on a weekend camping trip around his birthday almost every year. He loved to travel and explore new places and things. Andrew also enjoyed playing D&D in his spare time.
