Andre graduated from Brookville High School in Campbell County. Virginia. Andre very much enjoyed one of his hobbies of drawing and gifting them to others. When Dre wasn’t drawing, he had other hobbies he enjoyed such as cooking, wrestling, and football. He spent most of work life in the restaurant industry cooking as he had a passion for cooking until his health no longer allowed him to continue. His love for football lead to becoming a diehard Miami Dolphin fan.
