He offers an understanding of what it is like to be in their shoes at this ever present and challenging time in their lives.
Born and raised in Roswell, Georgia, Andrew’s family was one of the founding families of Saint Peter Chanel Catholic Church, where Andrew was an active member. He attended Blessed Trinity Catholic High School and was offered a full Presidential Scholarship to Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. After being diagnosed twice with a life-threatening virus known as Myocarditis and miraculously surviving, Andrew was asked to share his story with a confirmation group. The experience ignited a desire within Andrew to share his story with others and has led to the creation of his speaking ministry, Faith Filled Heart.
Andrew is a recent graduate of Mercer University’s Stetson School of Business, and currently works in business in Roswell, Georgia. He has recently retired from being an Emergency Medical Technician and for the Macon-Bibb Emergency Management Agency as well as with the Mid Georgia Ambulance Marketing and Community Outreach Department.

With Andrew’s life challenges, strong faith, and an unbelievably rewarding career he is sure to be unlike any other presenter. His speeches typically include his whole story and what he learned about life and his faith each time his life was threatened. Andrew would be more than happy to work with your already planned main topic or theme, or to assist in coming up with a new topic or theme. He is comfortable speaking on a variety of topics and he looks forward to the opportunity to reach more people through his talks.
