A native of Southern California, Andy gravitates towards all things digital - communication through and around video games, meme culture, social networks, and how these spaces are influenced by hegemony and power.

His under/graduate training firmly rooted in the Communication Studies discipline, he holds a master's degree from San Francisco State University (2018) and a bachelor's degree from the University of San Francisco (2016). 

Broadly, his interests include games studies, gender and identity, and critical/cultural studies. At UO, Andy investigates gaming culture and the methods such communities enlist to navigate hegemonic forces in non-gaming spaces.
