Andy once wrote an award-winning short story. In kindergarten. His teacher gave him a gold star. Now looking back, he realizes he may have peaked at age five. In college he studied English and communications. He got decent grades, but not once did he get a gold star.

He got high-fives from his bosses, won some awards, and had photos shown in an exhibit at SXSW. But again, no gold star. His 10-year career finally landed him a position as producer at Tuleburg, where he writes copy, shoots photos, and helps with various media needs. In his free time, Andy is a Zumba fanatic, a freestyle rapper, a mother of four, and co-author of the NYT bestseller, Chicken Soup for the Geriatric Soul. That last sentence is entirely false.
