Andrea is a graduate of The State University of New York at Fredonia and SUNY Buffalo State College, earning a BS in Video Production in 2015 and a BFA in Graphic Design in 2019, respectively. The combination of the two disciplines has sparked a passion for and concentration on motion graphics. They are also an avid writer, having self-published a novel, The Boy Who Destroyed the World, in 2013.

When it comes to their art, Andrea strives to blur the lines between fiction and reality, and often infuses an element of surrealism into their work. They are largely inspired by the expansive fictional realms of film, television, and video games, as well as the vast unknown the universe holds. Because of this, they are always willing to try new things, experiment, and find unique solutions of a particular problem.

Andrea currently works as a graphic designer and motion/VFX artist at FIFTEEN in Buffalo, New York.
