what others say about me

Loyola Marymount University

“What I like most about Andy’s presentations and sessions is that he goes beyond just telling students what to do. Instead, he shares examples of his experiences as a working freelancer and reality television expert. Andy encourages students to pursue writing, but without sounding Pollyanna-ish about what the prospects are of landing a well-paying freelance gig. His wealth of experience with magazines and publishing — along with a wry, sometimes self-deprecating sense of humor — provides him a credible voice that really connects with students.”

Tom Nelson, professor of journalism, Loyola Marymount University

Stetson University

“I was thoroughly impressed with Andy’s ability to put my students and I at ease and allow us to engage with the improv activities comfortably and confidently. Not only were the activities fun, but he did a great job of helping us see how we could apply the principles and skills involved to our daily lives and work.”

Colin MacFarlane, Stetson University

“Andy provided improv training for my leadership team. Not only did everyone have a blast, but they also learned so much about mindfulness, stress management, communication, and connection. The time with Andy was certainly the highlight of the retreat!”

Lua Hancock, Vice President of Campus Life and Student Success, Stetson University
