Location:Baltimore, MD

Occupation: Engineer for Department of Defense

Andrew works for the Department of Defense as a Systems Engineer, but don't take him too seriously. An avid gamer, he's ranked as one of the top 50 in the world for playing World of Warcraft.

At just 26 years old, Andrew has led major, multi-million dollar projects. With professional experience in aerospace and mechanical engineering, he is no stranger to designing large-scale systems. And when it comes to building, he has led the Oklahoma State University "Design, Build, Fly" team to a 1st place win over some of the best aerospace programs in the world, including MIT and USC.

Andrew likes to joke about his high IQ and brags that he developed a specialized monitoring device used to identify contamination in aerospace platforms. When asked what would be the easiest part of The Big Brain Theory for him, Andrew replied, "winning," because you don't play games with the gamer.
