Andy joined the team at Market Street Wealth Management in 2016 as a financial advisor.  His particular interests are working with clients approaching the retirement years creating in depth individualized holistic financial plans.  Andy previously served as a pastor at Willowdale Chapel in Kennett Square for 12 years.  


From his former years as a pastor, Andy loves using donor advised funds to utilize tax planning strategies to keep more dollars in his client’s pockets coupled with more funds in the hands of their favorite non-profit.  Andy enjoys the complexity of privately held stock, maximizing pension benefits, and bringing a sense of intelligent simplicity to the often complex financial decisions of retirement. 


He has a BA in Interactive Media Production from Bournemouth University in the UK and an MA in Bible from the Graduate School at Lancaster Bible College.  Andy holds the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation and the Chartered Advisor of Philanthropy (CAP®) designation having studied at the American College of Financial Services.

On a personal note, Andy grew up in England, and has moved back and forth every few years to the USA for much of his life.  He resides in West Chester, PA with four kids, four dogs and one wife.  He and his family are plugged in deeply to Providence Church in downtown West Chester, where Andy is active in a number of volunteer leadership roles on the finance team, marriage mentor team, and in the foster and adoption community.


Andy loves anything to do with athletics, and loves the intense challenges that team sports create.  He coached middle school soccer for 11 years, ran a marathon without any training in his younger years, and is currently ticking off the best scuba diving spots around the world with his adventure loving kids.  If he suddenly doesn’t answer your emails, there is a good chance he got eaten by a large shark somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
