Creativity wizard, pseudo-graphic designer, musician, small business owner, gifted TV binge watcher, writer of other people's speeches, and now author, Andre can't seem to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. But in the meantime, he's enjoying the ride toward self-discovery.
By day, Andre is a Program Manager at the University of Michigan-Flint. As a side hustle, he is co-owner of A & A Parties Galore with his super hot wife. Beyond that, he is an ultra consumer of Jimmy John's, a hardcore binger of Netflix, and is that one dude who can't dance without permanently injuring at least three people.
Andre loves writing. He honed his skill with over 15 years worth of writing on his past blog "Inside Andre's Head" and his current blog "The Unmitigated Word", where he uses his wit, humor, and accidental wisdom to discuss hot-button topics like politics, religion, race, social matters, and relationships. Together, these blogs have attracted over 250,000 unique viewers (though, to be fair, about 249,000 of them were probably Nigerian spammers). After a night of eating cold pizza and watching horrible infomercials, something possessed Andre to write a book. A few short months later, his first book "Make America Date Again: One Man's Accidentally Insightful Take on Dating and Relationships in the 21st Century" was completed and published in December, 2018 (Now available in print and eBook. Shameless plug). Apparently being a glutton for punishment, he decided to write another book "Authoring While Black: Assorted Musings from a Black Gen Exer", which was published in January, 2020 and released both in print and eBook
When he’s not writing random books, you can find Andre in a dark corner of his Man Cave, crying and curled up in the fetal position after another soul-crushing season of Detroit Lions' and Michigan Wolverines' football.
Andre lives in Flint, Michigan with his wife and two children.
