“Andrea has such a unique perspective on the world…no matter the medium, she projects a fresh voice that cuts through the clutter with a real-world directness that makes her so relatable…and I must say, very entertaining. A fantastic mix of wit, warmth, charm and smarts, she had me from the first moment we met, and I’ve been a fan ever since!”
“Andrea’s story is a journey toward self-empowerment and healing. Live Your Playlist is funny, revealing, and poignant. Her writing style is distinctive, her words are witty, and I believe in her heartfelt message.”
“Andrea’s “Playlist” is music to my ears! I have trudged through this business-of-show myself and I know that, at times, it can be as disenchanting as it is empowering to us girls. No matter what genre of shit life throws at you, she shows you the path to help you boogie your way out of it. Andrea polishes her vulnerability like a pair of red patent leather dancing shoes so that we, her new friends, can find our own groove. I am proud to call her my DJ!”
“Andrea is a blast to watch on TV! Always fun and engaging with her guests and a very cool person to boot!”
