Provocative and poignant stories of life told with grace and just the right touch of humor. He is a very physical teller who enlivens the stage with vivid images that capture both the heart and mind of the listener.

Andre brings a potent sense of story when he steps on stage and his low key, conversational style of telling invites the audience into the heart of the tale. He is acutely aware of the needs of the audience, himself and the story….
Loren Niemi,  former President of the Board of the National Storytelling Network

Andre's stories come straight from his heart into the hearts' of his audience. He leaves his listeners with thought provoking images and healing messages that linger long after the story has been told.
Tina Rhode, Cygnus Storytelling, Wonderweavers 

….Andre manages to gracefully combine the freshness and audience-driven responsiveness of a great storyteller with meaning-creating details of gesture and moment-by-moment intention. This combination of responsiveness, gesture, and intention is a significant and rare accomplishment and a gift to the audience, particularly because Andre's spirit of unwavering generosity welcomes the audience into his beautifully crafted world.
