When Andre was a kid, he wanted to be a puppeteer. And a magician. And a cartoonist. Thankfully, he picked up a camera. Now, as a photographer & director, he can be all of those things and more. At his roots, he's an African American artist based in NYC and Philadelphia. He’s a skateboarder, hurling himself into a sport that poses constant visual opportunities: simple concrete stairs become tools for self-expression. At work, Andre finds new ways to experience everyday objects for his clients: brands like Anthropologie, Footlocker, Sub Pop Records, and Runner’s World Magazine. He symphonically blends photography, animation, 3D printing and CGI to bring objects, products, and food to life in unexpected and unforgettable ways. In true puppeteer/magician/cartoonist fashion, Andre uses everything at hand to joyfully make even the most unusual dreams come true.
