As a student of the search fund model, as a searcher-CEO of one of the most successful search funds to date, and as a search fund investor-advisor, Andy has spent over two decades in the search fund arena. In that time, he has invested in almost 200 search funds and has advised many more.

In 2012, Andy founded Aspect Investors as a vehicle for personally investing in search funds and their acquisitions. In 2016, he expanded the team to include Brad Buser and B.A. Cullum. In 2017, Aspect began investing under a traditional fund structure to expand upon the platform Andy had built. In 2022, Mike Schmitz joined the investment team, along with others in key supporting roles.

From 2004–2006, Andy was Co-Founder and Managing Principal of VantageCap Partners (VCP), the search fund that launched BHG.

Prior to VCP, Andy was a founding team member of Broadband Venture Partners (BVP), a Dallas-based growth equity investment firm specializing in enterprise software, telecom software/services, and managed service provider models (ASP/SaaS/MSP). At BVP, he worked extensively with Telecom Technologies Inc., acquired by Sonus Networks Inc.; VeriCenter, Inc., acquired by SunGard Data Systems Inc.; and other BVP portfolio companies. Earlier in his career, Andy was an Associate Consultant with Bain & Company.

He has served as Co-President of the Dallas Chapter of the Stanford GSB Alumni Association, as a Board Member of the University of Texas Silver Spurs Alumni Association, and as a Board Member of and Advisor to community- and faith-based organizations.
