Andrew is a 10-year veteran of the United States Air Force. Born in Buffalo, he shifted from serving his country to serving his hometown community and become a best-selling author, an expert Medicare advisor, successful agency owner, and one of the top advocates in the WNY area.
As a pioneering industry leader, he has been a sought-after Medicare guest-speaker, invited to talk about all things Medicare, all the time, all around WNY. On-site seminars. "Lunch & Learn" employee events. Interviews with WECK Radio Senior Matters. Article contributions for Forever Young magazine. It is surprising how much there actually is to talk about with Medicare.
In 2015, Andrew founded Medicare Management of WNY with his wife, Lyndsey, to be the first "anti-insurance agency" of it's kind statewide, making a concerted and controlled effort providing and prioritizing "education over solicitation" free from any insurance company incentives or conflict of interest.
In 2018, Andrew organized and orchestrated a coordinated and cooperative effort between some well known WNY small and medium-sized businesses to design and develop a way to make the transition to Medicare smoother and seamless for both Employer and Employee and the Medicare SmartStart Program™ was born.
Now, nationally recognized, more than 950+ WNY'ers have successfully participated in the Medicare SmartStart Program™, with close to breaking the 1,000th served very soon.
In 2021, the popularity and preference for WNY'ers to rely on Andrew's Medicare SmartStart Program brought forth a new need to serve the community in a new way and became the basis for writing his newest book, Starting Medicare Smartly, an Amazon #1 best-seller in 3 separate categories.
Andrew is on a mission to help 2,500 baby boomers in Buffalo start Medicare smartly by the end of December 2025.
