One of the founding members of The Panic Squad, Andrew is Mr. Physical Comedy and loves to bend his face and body into anything the scene calls for. He also seems to channel Dr. Seuss himself when playing rhyming games.
Andrew discovered his love for improv at Trinity Western University, where he became part of the university's comedy improv league, "11:07". According to Andrew, "after watching and wishing I could do improv for months, I finally gave it a shot. Five minutes on stage and I knew I was home. We're all wired differently, to like what we like, excel at some things and struggle with others (that's why I don't teach math and why my wife takes care of the bills). Hopefully we all find the niche God designed us for, like I did that evening on stage."
Graduation didn't seem like a good enough reason to stop doing improv, so in 1996 Andrew started The Panic Squad with Dave and some other improvisers from TWU. The rest is history. In 2001 The Panic Squad became a full-time venture.
Andrew, his wife Karla, daughter Katelyn, twins Alyssa and Luke, and new baby Elijah, live in Lynden, WA. He is also the booking guy for the Squad, so if you summon our elite agents of comedy for your event, chances are you'll be talking to Andrew.
