Hey, I’m Andy.

Let’s build.

I’m the co-founder and CEO of Toolpath. Our goal is to make it faster, easier, and less expensive for product designers and manufacturers to prototype and produce high-precision CNC parts. 

Over the next decade I believe we will see increased investment in manufacturing technology, driven by a desire to promote economic independence, national security, safe working conditions, environmental sustainability, and middle-class job creation.

Starting with revolutionary automation in computer-aided machining software, we’re building toward this future.

I can’t wait to see where we go from there.

I’m a lifelong entrepreneur.

In 2011, Kevin Mann and I founded CallRail, and I served as CEO from 2011-2021. CallRail has been been recognized as a Best Workplace by Inc. Magazine and named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies for five consecutive years (#107 in 2016). When I passed the torch in 2021, CallRail reached $72 million in annual recurring revenue and we’ve been profitable since the very beginning.

In 2005, I started BimmerShops with the goal of being the most comprehensive directory of independent BMW repair shops. We’ve become a one-stop resource for the BMW enthusiast who wants the highest-quality service for their vehicle. Since then, we’ve expanded to help drivers of all makes of European automobiles, including Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Audi, and Volkswagen vehicles.

Start early, start often.

My career building businesses and internet things began in 1998, when I was 14, by creating Dumb Laws. It ran from 1998 – 2019, attracting tens of millions of visitors and becoming a very small cultural phenomenon. In the days before smartphones rendered the entire bathroom book genre obsolete, it also gave me the opportunity to write two very silly books and a board game that, frankly, wasn’t very much fun to play.

Life outside work.

I grew up in Columbus, Georgia and graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering in 2005. Afterwards, I worked in management consulting for a year and a half, which was about a year longer than I needed to realize I was not well-suited for that career.

Outside of work, you can occasionally find me snowskiing, waterskiing, mountain biking, or wake surfing.

Today, I live in Peachtree City with my wife Allison and three daughters. We have a golf cart, a swimming pool, and a goldendoodle. It’s delightful.
