Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Andrew spent young adulthood combining his love of mathematics with his love of big explosions by serving12 years in the army as an artillery officer. Academically curious, he left the military to try his hand at "higher education." He ended up with a degree of chemistry and then packed off to get his butt kicked in medical school.

Andrew practiced for 15 years as an Emergency (ER) Physician and general practitioner, all the time with a special interest in psychotherapy and counselling. During the same time, he held faculty positions at two major university medical schools. The same combination of genetics and life situation that affects 13% of Americans struck, and Andrew found himself addicted to alcohol and opiates. Fortunately, he was able to find a way to recovery, and remains happy, healthy, and free from drugs and alcohol to this day.

Upon recovering from his addiction issues, Andrew decided that a respite from clinical medical practice was in order, and during that time he became involved in addictions research and writing. That proved a fulfilling pursuit, so he remains so engaged to this day.

Andrew is a farm kid and country boy who never got over it. An uncomplicated and unpretentious person, he has never fit the mould that his profession usually casts. True to form, his passion has become making the beauty and elegance of science available to all audiences and people of all backgrounds. He writes and lectures to the general public to that end.
