Hey, I’m Andy.

I’m a lifelong entrepreneur.

I’m the co-founder and CEO of CallRail. Since 2011, CallRail has delivered call analytics and marketing insights to more than 150,000 businesses.

We’ve 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). In 2020, CallRail surpassed $60 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.


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.

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. I also enjoy learning how to make metal things on the CNC mill in my garage.

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.
