Andres got his first taste of theater in Junior High School where he found that dancing was his passion.

He auditioned and attended Julia Richman H.S where he enrolled in the Talented Unlimited program. That is where he honed his acting skills. He majored in musical theater which taught him how to sing, dance and do a bit of acting. Out of the three it was singing that called to him and landed him right into the freestyle era.

It was in these clubs that he was introduced to a producer is his neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn.

They both produced a freestyle song called “In The Rain” under the name Pro & The Groove. He released another song called Dirty Talk under the label Strictly Rhythm.

It was at the famous dance club Palladium that he met a young playwright that would offer Andres an acting gig in an off Broadway show called “Life’s A Drag”. It wasn’t till the mid 90’s that he wrote his life story and put it up on stage called – “Making Of A Wo-man”. It was a combination of monologues dealing with his life with stand up in between at the famous Nuyorican Poets Café down town. We turn the clock 15yrs later and Andres returned with his own comedy troupe Lose Control and can be seen on Youtube under Losecontroltv. In 2013 he received the H.O.L.A award for best solo performance for Growing Up Gonzalez. You can now get his self-published book of personal essays and poetry called Slip Trips and Falls on Amazon which is based on his one man show I’m Just Saying.

This one man show is a true account of the hardships and struggles of growing up in NYC in the 80’s until present time. With monologues based on people he has met and stand up he tells you his life experiences that allow you to understand and bring you to an identifiable ride of laughter and emotions based on the human experience.
