Andrew was born in Baltimore, MD but only stayed on the East Coast long enough to develop a love of blue crab and the Orioles. At age 11, his family moved to Orange County, CA, where he lived and worked until making the leap to Northern CA and the wine business in 2010.
Andrew came to his love of wine originally through travel, spending the summer of 2006 wandering across Europe and discovering the joy of simple meals paired with wine. He returned home determined to learn more and quickly realized that he had discovered a lifelong passion.
In 2010, he left his job in Southern CA to pursue a career in the wine business and quickly found work during the 2010 harvest at Hook & Ladder Winery. After completing the harvest, he then spent 3 years at Seghesio Family Vineyards, before joining the team at HUNNICUTT as the Hospitality Director.
