Andrew was the owner of his own landscape business in the Hilton Head Island area of South Carolina for 10 years during which he designed, installed, and maintained beautiful coastal, landscapes.  After selling their business and home, Andrew and his wife Angela decided to return to KC to be closer to all immediate family.
