As the Creative Alliance’s Operations Director for almost ten years, Andre’s seen and done it all. Organized events, rent out venue space, and even had to deal with a performer having a stroke on stage. Andre’s life is an interesting one, with beginnings in Jamaica and travels to the U.S. by way of Miami. Listen as he talks about his “Coming to America” moment and the culture shock, his time at school with Ziggy Marley, and his hopes for The Room, his soon to be open cafe in the heart of Mt. Vernon.
