As a gaming advocate in Georgia, Andrew promotes the growing number of video game development studios on tap as the Peach State reaches nearly $1 billion a year in economic development across the state, making it one of the fastest-growing gaming communities in the nation.

In this interview, he explains to the audience that one doesn't need a college degree to get into this field. A college degree helps but if you are open to learning on your own it's just as much value as having one.  New games are developed each year and he wants to see many more.
