job when I was 12.
Did you ever go to school to be a mechanic?
Andrew: I learned on my own at the school of bloody knuckles! Read books, took stuff apart, put it back together and just went from there.
Who has been an example for you on the wrenching side of things?
Andrew: I guess Jessie James, well his style, but I dunno. I just do what's fun for me.
Who do you admire?
Andrew: Anybody that follows their dream wherever it may take them... I know mine has led me on a wild ride haha.
Do you have a workshop yourself or do you usually work at someone else's place?
Andrew: I'm doing work in a couple shops right now. But mostly my garage. We are working on a shop at the moment.
What tools are your favourite to work with?
Andrew: Anything loud that cuts burns and destroys metal!
What's a tool that you don't have and you've always wanted to have?
Andrew: I'd really like to get my hands on old world war era machine shop tools!
What's custom on your BMX bike?
Andrew: The serial number: 666fuk haha
What BMX companies do you respect?
Andrew: S&M, FIT, GOODS BMX, any company that's rider owned.
What are your current projects you're working on?
Andrew: Well.. got a 300ZX twin turbo in the garage that got wrecked, and we are stripping it down to nothing and building a new one out of a non turbo car, which is a lot harder than it seems lol. Everything including wiring harnesses, computers, suspension dashboard etc. has to get swapped. Also got a Caddy Coupe Deville in the works that I'm redoing the hydraulics, and putting a 350 Chevy in. A '54 GMC school bus going on a Chevy Duelly frame with airbags, custom interior and front sheetmetal. Gunna be a wild bus!
Are you going to make the deadlines?
Andrew: Not sure about that at this time, haha.
Any last words/shout outs/thank you's?
Andrew: Yeah, big thanks to all the guys at S&M bikes, Chris Moeller, Dylan Ambrose, and Steven Leonard to name a few, Shad Johnson at Goods, Levi Hall, Brian at Black Lotus tattoos! the people that let me build stuff for them, my dad Colin who put a wrench in my hand at 6, my mom for letting him haha, but most of all my amazing wife Jennifer thank you baby for giving me the time to chase my dreams! and two wonderful kids Katelyn & Colin.
