My name is Andy. I was born and raised in Terrytown, Louisiana, which is part of the greater New Orleans area. My parents were in the oilfield supply business, and in the interest of keeping with the family tradition, most of my career has been working in the oilfield as a process engineer. It's funny how things worked out that way.
Having spent most of my life in New Orleans, I am a huge New Orleans Saints fan. Sorry, Falcons fans. Our motto has always been, "There's always next year!" with the exception of the 2009 season, when we went to and won our first Superbowl! Yay Saints!
Recently, I have developed an interest in augmented reality games. I love playing both Ingress (Go, Enlightened!) and, more recently, Pokemon Go, which my daughter has taken an interest in after a complete lack of interest in Ingress, so I am fortunate that we finally have a common interest. That is rather unusual for a parent to have with their teenager, so there's that.
Recently, my wife and I started a network marketing business, and I am always looking to save money and add additional streams of income. I have tried affiliate marketing in the past and did not have much success with it, but I figured I might want to give it another go and possibly try to integrate that with our network marketing business.
Another one of my passions is politics, and I am considering adding a political blog as my second website here at Wealthy Affiliate. I realize such a website can be rather polarizing, but as Kyle likes to say in the training, you should do something you're passionate about, so I think I may be able to make a go of it.
