Andy went on to teach himself computer graphics animation in 1 year and had a job lined up at George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) before he graduated. He was one of the top 7 students from Berkeley's College of Chemistry to be solicited by MIT to attend its graduate program. Andy chose to have fun, making movies at ILM.

In his spare time, Andy plays the stock market. Much of Andy's understanding of the stock market comes from experience and intuition. He has developed a charting system using technical analysis to better understand the trends and movements of individuals stocks, trading vehicles, and the stock market itself.
