Andrew started working for the OGS in 2016 as a research associate with the seismic team. As a seismic data analyst, he locates earthquakes in the state of Oklahoma. 

He received his M.S. in geology from the University of Oklahoma in 2012. His thesis research was focused on paleomagnetic analysis techniques. 

While a graduate student at the University of Oklahoma, he was a teaching assistant for Introductory Geology, Sedimentary Petrology, Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, Structural Geology, Introduction to Field Methods, and Fieldcamp: the five week geology capstone course in Colorado (twice). He also supervised the paleomagnetic research laboratory (operated by Dr. Elmore of the University of Oklahoma).

Between graduating and starting work at the OGS, he wrote and published a book on a physics hypothesis “On The Relation of Matter and Energy". He coaches judo at Sooner Judo Club and competes in sailing regattas.
