Class of 2023
Andy was born and raised in the Bay Area with his two sisters, a bearded dragon, two rats, three hermit crabs, a cat and a couple dogs. Whether he was pulling rabbits out of hats (literally) or crashing his older sister’s tap dancing class, Andy has always been drawn to art and performance. He spent his early years learning and performing around his community at theaters such as Berkeley Rep, A.C.T, and Magic Theatre. After graduating highschool, Andy became a preschool teacher, chef, and busboy while also attending College of Marin where he received his Associates Degree in Drama. After two years of community college and 40 hour work weeks, Andy was accepted into the Carnegie Mellon Acting Class of 2023.
While at CMU, Andy learned to take risks, have fun, and develop a unique artist identity. He has expanded his artistry into the music industry. Under his stage name, Kid Wolf, Andy has released three alternative hip-hop albums, produced three music videos, and written over 100 songs. His last project, The Wolf Who Cried Wolf, recently passed 30k streams on Spotify. Currently he is working on a project titled, Magic Trick Rap Show, a love letter, of sorts, to stage magic, spoken word and 90s west coast sound; the project combines audio magic tricks, a fifteen-piece orchestra and original music.
Andy dreams of working as an actor and musician worldwide, but still thinks his favorite job will always be: Head of Storytelling at the preschool.
