Our sincerest condolences go out to Andrew's family and friends. We worked closely with Andrew for over 13 years and although we rarely met in person, it didn't take much to know that Andrew was a genuine, caring, and honest person. Andrew's creative spirit, ability to come through no matter what, and overall awesomeness were unmatched. We will miss him dearly on a personal and professional level. Our prayers are with your family at this very difficult time. Please accept our condolences. Ely, Benny, and the team at Grad Media.

My deepest condolences to Courtney, Ethan, Cooper and all of Andrew’s family. It seems unfair for such a young and free spirit to be gone too soon. I hope that good memories can ease the pain of this loss. Sending love and light to all those who were touched by Andrew.
