Andrew came to AFA as an Associate Advisor in January of 2018 following two years spent at another independent, Atlanta-based firm learning the industry as a Client Service Associate.  Now, as an Associate Advisor, he enjoys working with clients to build, adjust, and implement their financial plans all the while learning the intricacies of their own personal financial stories.  Andrew serves on AFA’s Investment Planning Committee and also lends his tech expertise to a variety of other responsibilities within the firm.

Born and raised in Roswell, GA, his interest in personal finance was piqued during his early teenage years in conversations with his father about stocks, bonds, and what it meant to “live within your means.”  This interest further grew into a full-fledged career goal during a Personal Finance class he attended his Sophomore year of college.  When he discovered Western Kentucky University’s Financial Planning concentration, he knew he had found a perfect fit.  Andrew involved himself as a member of the student Financial Planning Association, serving as Treasurer, and even attended a national financial planning conference to increase his knowledge and confirm his commitment to entering the profession.  

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Western Kentucky University with a B.S. degree in Finance, he began his career and started working toward the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation, which he successfully obtained in August of 2019.

Andrew loves new challenges, and works hard to be the best at everything he does. When not working with clients, he likes to unwind by napping as the Golf Channel plays in the background and watching college sports; the Kentucky Wildcats are his life-long favorite team, but he also pulls hard for his Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.  He enjoys any time he can spend outdoors and especially enjoys playing golf at interesting courses, and hiking and fly-fishing for trout in the mountains.  Andrew recently checked “spend the night in the bottom of the Grand Canyon” off of his bucket list and aspires to one-day summit all 58 of Colorado’s 14,000 ft peaks.
