After attending her first *NSYNC concert in the early 2000’s, Andrea has made it her mission to enter the media industry.
The ambience, music and overall spectacle encouraged her to enroll in post secondary education, while always maintaining a media focus.
Andrea graduated from the Honours Communications and Multimedia program at McMaster University in 2010. The following year, she graduated from Ryerson University’s Master of Professional Communication program. While attending both academic institutions, her primary research focused on fan cultures and fan development.
During her free time, Andrea enjoys scrapbooking, watching television, reading and attending concerts. Her concert count currently exceeds 150, and she has many more planned for the future.
Andrea dreams of working as a storywriter for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), or as some type of writer on a science-fiction based television series.
