Andrew grew up in Marietta, GA and graduated from Georgia Tech in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. Following graduation, Andrew decided to put his mechanical mindset together with his life-long love of sports and coaching to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. He completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy and became a board certified physical therapist in 2019.

Since graduation in 2019, his clinical focus has been sports medicine, outpatient orthopedics, and myofascial pain. He works with patients of all ages with specialty focus in rehabilitation and performance in alternative sports such as rock climbing and ultimate Frisbee, athletic injuries of the ankle, knee, and hip both conservatively and post-operatively, as well as return to sport for overhead athletes. Additionally, Andrew specializes in treatment of upper and lower spinal pain, utilizing a combination of targeted biomechanical techniques and spine-specific interventions.

When not treating patients, Andrew enjoys trying new types of coffee, climbing rocks of various shapes and sizes, coaching and playing ultimate Frisbee, playing board games, reading fantasy books, and eating too much Chipotle. Andrew is a huge Dallas Cowboys and Manchester United fan as well as an Atlanta United season ticket holder.
